Bleeding Clutch assembly after Master Cylinder rebuild

Post by d_kitchell »



I just rebuilt the clutch master cylinder on my 1985 Aspencade and I cannot get it to bleed right...I know I put all of the parts in correctly and have replaced the lover clutch slave cylinder parts and it bleed out good then...but for some odd reason...I cannot get the system to 'pump up'. I have tried both 'gravity flow' and pumping up the master cylinder before opening the bleeding screw...nothing works...looking for suggestions.

Recently rebuilt my slave cylinder. Used a brake vacuum pump (similar to Mityvac). Had just gotten the vacuum, and was first time use. Worked very well, wished I'd gotten one sooner. Made the job a one man situation and simplified procedure. Well worth the money. Hope that helps.
