To bleed the clutch, it is best to start by "gravity bleeding" it. Fill the reservoir and open the bleed valve on the slave. Let is sit, and gravity will do it's thing. When you have fluid coming out of the valve, close it and then start the pressure bleeding. To do this, have a friend press the clutch pedal all the way down and hold it. While he is holding, open the valve to release the pressure, then close it again. After the valve is closed, let the pedal back up slowly. Then smoothly push it in again, and repeat. Keep this up until you have good pedal pressure, and you get a minimum of 3 smooth airless squirts out of the bleeder valve in a row. This can be a messy job, so don't wear nice clothes, and keep a drain pan handy.
