    95 Sierra Clutch Bleed

    ok guys, so i replaced my master for the clutch because it completly failed. put it all back together after bleeding the master, reblead the whole system via the bleeder screw on the slave. but i still cant get it to work. i know the clutch is fine, it was just replaced a few months ago and i have been greasing the nipple on the bell housing every 30k. anyone got any tips to bleeding this thing? the guys at the tranmission shop are useless here. i dont have a reverse bleeder, and would like to refrain from buying one if possible.
    Thanks

    Not familiar with the hydraulics on your particular truck but this is what I generally do for bleeding clutch systems.

    Unbolt the slave cylinder and hold it with the inlet line at top. Push in the piston on the slave cylinder (push the pushrod in). This drives any air in the slave up the line and into the master cylinder reservoir where it will bubble up thru the fluid and escape.. I do this three or four times and this gets rid of all the air.

    slave cylinder leaking. if post number two doesnt work, cycle the clutch pedal 20-50 times between bleeding. repeat until you have a pedal. probably should replace slave cylinder if original.
