Um... 11/16? 5/8? That seems awfully huge for a bleeder.
You sure you're trying to unscrew the right part?

Here's a Rockauto Cardone Reman RF caliper for a 1979 245 with vented rotors.

The center bleeder seems to be screwed into an adapter of some kind, possibly to repair previously stripped bleeder threads. If that's what it is, you do NOT want to unscrew it.
