Icon8 1992 Honda Prelude si Clutch problem

So I was feeling my clutch pedal w/o pressure. I decide to buy and replace both the master and slave cylinder. When I replaced both I started to bleed the clutch and Iím getting no bubble or air. Just the fluid almost w/o pressure and the clutch pedal stay on the floor.

So probably one of those new cylinders is dmg?

Is the level in the reservoir going down as you bleed? If so then keep bleeding. Make sure youre keeping the reservoir full too. When you start seeing your new fluid come through and still no bubbles then worry about it if you still have no pedal feel.

Yes it goes down. But got no pressure. I noticed that the line have two distributor. So I decided to bleed the entire line including those spot. Still no pressure there. Donít know the purpose of those parts in the fluid line. Still need to check the first piece of line that connects from the master cylinder to the first distributor. Or replace the new master with the old one. See what happen.

If I see no changes then throw a straight new line from the master cylinder to the slave and eliminate those distributors.

Main problem = no air, no bubble, no pressure at slave cylinder.

No keep using the new master and slave cylinders, toss old parts like that away.

Keep trying i think you're doing it wrong, follow post #2 advice. Examine clutch hose for leakage too

Are you bleeding from the slave cylinder? When I did mine I opened the valve on the slave then had someone push the clutch pedal all the way down then tighten the valve before they lift the pedal up.

^The correct way for a good bleed. Also, take a screwdriver, flip it around, and go along the entire line/anything in the system that holds fluid and hit it multiple times, etc. This helps to dis-lodge any "stuck" airbubbles that will come back to haunt you later.
