I discovered a leak on outside of my clutch master cylinder. Changed the master cylinder out. Now I cant bleed the clutch at all. Also noticed the master cylinder at the firewall was moving forward when try to engage clutch. Does not make any sense at all. HELP!

Did you bench bleed it? I'm confused, it sounds like you're talking about the clutch slave, which is on the transmission, but then you say the master on the bulkhead. Did you properly torque the nuts and bolts securing the clutch master to the bulkhead? Is maybe the bulkhead flexing?

REMOVE BLEEDER SCREW

POKE A PAPER CLIP INTO THE MC BODY TO CLEAR THE HOLE

WHAT I'MMA SAYING IS---THERE'S A LITTLE HOLE INSIDE THE BLEEDER SCREW HOLE THAT IS POSSIBLY OBSTRUCTED. DON'T "DRILL IT OUT"---BUT WITH YOU FINGERS ONLY, A SMALL DRILL BIT MIGHT WORK WELL.

THE HOLE MAY NOT BE "DEAD CENTER", IT MAY BE SLIGHTLY OFF TO ONE SIDE
