Do you have good pedal pressure?

No I dont, the clutch pedal has no pressure at all.

You must still have air in the system, can you see air when you bleed the clutch?

No, oil comes up but not alot just a tiny bit. Could it be that I have to adjust the clutch pedal?

You must have sufficient clearance between the pedal and master cylinder push rod. If there is insufficient clearance, the master cylinder piston would not return fully and prevent fluid from going into system to bleed the air out.

Whats clearance? I know its not pumping the air out, cause it has no strength, but do I just adjust it?

Perform the following and then bleed the system again.

CLUTCH PEDAL & CLUTCH PEDAL POSITION SWITCH ADJUSTMENT
NOTE: • The clutch is self-adjusting to compensate for wear.
• If there is no clearance between the master cylinder piston and push rod, the release bearing is held against the diaphragm spring, which can result in clutch slippage or other clutch problems.

1. Loosen locknut (A), and back off the clutch switch (B) (or adjusting bolt) until it no longer touches the clutch pedal (C).

2. Loosen locknut (D), and turn the push rod (E) in or out to get the specified stroke (F) and height (G) at the clutch pedal.

? Clutch Pedal Stroke: 141-151 mm (5.6-5.9 in.)
? Clutch Pedal Height: 190 mm (7.5 in.)

3. Tighten locknut (D).

4. Turn the clutch switch (B) in until it contacts the clutch pedal (C).

5. Turn the clutch switch (B) in an additional 3/4 to 1 turn.

6. Tighten locknut (A).

7. Loosen locknut (H) and the clutch interlock switch (I).

8. Press the clutch pedal to the floor.

9. Release the clutch pedal 15-20 mm (0.59-0.79 in.) From the fully pressed position, and hold it there. Adjust the position of the clutch interlock switch (I) so that the engine will start with the clutch pedal in this position.

10. Tighten locknut (H).
