I replaced the clutch master cylinder in my 88 prelude, and tooped the resovoir off. I tried using even a pressure bleeder and still nothing but air was comming out, and the resovoir barely went down at all. What should I do? Is there a special trick to bleeding the line?

Hi there,

It is always a good idea to bleed the master cyl on the bench first. But if already fitted, that is not a problem. Top up fluid, depress clutch and back off pipe at master cyl. Lock up when fluid?Air is expelled, then lift foot. Wait 2-3 sec and repeat. Do this about 4-5 times. Then repeat at slave cyl. Don't let reservoir fall below 1/4 full this should bleed all air from system.
