1990 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 188.00 miles

Have tried vacuum pump (Mityvac). Have reversed flow of fluid and pumped from the slave cylinder towards the master cylinder. Nothing seems to work or make it better.I've even installed a speed bleeder at the slave cylinder. You can see that the master cylinder is pumping the fluid as it flows through the clear tubing.
And there appears to be no leaks as there are no puddles to speak of and the level in the resorvoir is not changing.
the entire clutch system has been replaced with a clutch kit.A new master and slave cylinder. The pedal stays on the floor. Only one time did I get just a tiny amount of pressure but I lost it.
Do you
have the same problem?

What exactly is th epedal doing? Is it staying on thefloor? Is there too much free play (adjustment at master under dash) Do you get any fluid out of the bleeder at the slave cylinder? What parts if any have been replaced?

There is no action at the slave cylinder now.I did have some firmness at one point but lost it!
The master cylinder was bled before install and yes it does pump fluid. As I can see it travelling out of the clear plastic tubing that is attached to the slave cylinder.

Do you get any action out of the clutch fork/slave cylinder at all? Did you bench bleed the master before you installed it, If you loosen the line at the master and push the pedal down holding on to it, does any fluid come out?
