What year is your bike, and has it sat outside a lot? (Putting your bike info in your signature is helpful - see my signature) It's possible some contaminant, such as a deteriorating hose is causing the problem. Or the part may be defective.
I'd get a new bleeder screw before investing in a whole caliper, and if a caliper is needed, I'd get a used one on ebay.
Guba is right!
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
