Re: no pressure with clutch

k so heres what ive done.
bench bled the master cylinder with a hose running from where the clutch line attaches to the resivoir and pumped the rod till no more air came out then pumped it some more just in case.
after that installed master cylinder without pumping the petal
filled resivoir all the way
pushed petal to floor
helper opened bleeder bolt
closed bleeder bolt
lift up clutch petal slowly
repeat
repeat
repeat etc.
after that opened bleeder bolt and compressed slave cylinder then while cylinder is compressed all the way tighten bleeder bolt


Result: no pressure in clutch line. petal still drops to the floor

Re: no pressure with clutch

make sure its not leaking from anywhere. I thought to be the clutch you crack the bleeder, push the pedal to the floor, close the bleeder and repeat

Re: no pressure with clutch

ok i did it where the hose from the bleeder bolt comes up so that no air goes bac in. this is CRUTIAL!!! if u just have the hose attached to the bleeder and its flowing down u WILL suck air back into the lines.

Re: no pressure with clutch

I just bled my clutch yesterday, when it comes to pumping it agin you need to manually pull the clutch back up and push it back down..... a lot.

Any pressure is good pressure.

Re: no pressure with clutch

the trick i found out was to have a bottle of brake fluid resting on the front engine mount then have the hose thats attached to the bleeder on the slave runn up and into that bottle so u can see the air coming out. It also prevents from air being sucked back into the line because u will have brake fluid above the line and u can see the air bubbles coming out. After i set it up this way it only took like 15-20 min.
