Re: clutch cylinder
I followed a post from one of our memebers "cdnsarguy" to bleed my clutch cylinder.
I took the slave off the bell housing and removed the hydraulic line and filled the slave with fluid through that hole, it takes a little while to do this and you need to make sure you get all the air out. Place it on your work bench or what ever and keep the fill hole elevated.
Get a piece of clear tubing that will fit over the end of the hydraulic line.
Get a small clear plastic bottle, I used a 1 litre soda bottle.
Hang it under the truck with 1 inch of hydraulic fluid in it.
Make sure the clear hosing can reach the bottom of the soda bottle.
Fill the master cylinder and start bleeding it, you'll be able to push the pedal down by hand while kneeling next to the truck and you'll be able to see when all the air is out, don't forget to add more fluid to the MC as you go on.
Once you have all the air out you want to check your MC's fluid level and when it's about half full grab your slave keeping the tube port slightly elevated, pull the clear tube off the end of the hydraulic line. There will be a some fluid coming out, slowly put line back into the slave cylinder, this is a little messy but the fluid coming out will also push out that little bit of air out of the tube port of the MC.
This should get it done.
It took me longer to type this than to do the job
