I'M IN THE PROCESS OF BLEEDING THE CLUTCH AND THE RELEASE VALVE ON THE SLAVE CYLINDER DOES NOT LOOK LIKE OTHERS DO. HOW DO I LOOSEN THIS TYPE OF VALVE TO LET THE AIR OUT?

The valve has a loose fitting metal top on it, that when pressed, feels like it has a spring under it. The cap just spins and will not come off with light pressure. Am I supposed to pull on the cap to release the air or should the cap be taken off to expose the fitting?

No, dont do anything. It is the type of fitting that has some play due to the power train moving around.

Why are you bleeding the clutch?
