when bleeding the brakes, does the banjo bolt eye have to be aligned with the brake line? mine doesn't align up and there is no fluid coming out of the bleeder valve on the caliper.. thanks

No it doesn't have to be aligned. Just keep pumping the brake until it gets hard. Then crack the bleeder valve open and close the bleeder valve a couple of time while depressing the brake. Keep doing that and it should spray some fluid. Just make sure you have pressure in the lever. If you don't just keep pumping until you do.
