Re: clutch cylinder
Try this: get some small rubber tubing, like what is used for vacuum line. Open up the bleeder and put the rubber line over it, then put the other end of the line into a clean bottle. Fill the bottle with a little brake fluid so there's about 1" in the bottle.
Now work the pedal up and down the same as if you were bleeding it. With this setup the system can't suck air in when you let off, since the hose is submerged in fluid. All it can suck back is fluid. You just need to get enough fluid to flow down through the system that it pushes any remaining air all the way out of the hose, where it will rise out of the fluid in the bottle.
This works good for bleeding brakes too.
