NEW CLUTCH/BLEEDING PROBLEM

2000 BMW 535

Transmission problem
2000 BMW 535 V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 92000 miles

Bmw 540 v8 manual. I just put a new clutch in and cant get the line bled right now. The pedal is REALLY stiff towards the floor, but at the top, it falls like there is air in the line. It is hard to get the pedal to the floor, and the clutch does not disengage. The slave cylinder is new but it feels like the little piston inside isnt doing its job to push the fork. I didnt touch the fork during installation and I am 99.9% sure the throw out bearing is on right. The metal feed line to the slave might be messed up but that is the other thought I have at the moment.

Thank you.

Please explain " messed up" If that line is damaged, it should be replaced and then try bleeding the system again, if you need more assistance, please let us know.
