Bleeder screw should be somewhere on the slave cylinder, generally somewhere above the centerline of the unit. (unless someone snapped it off. If that's the case, sometimes you can drill it out, but this takes a lot of skill mixed with some luck. (You can't damage the threads at all, and if you go too deep you will damage the sealing surface). Therefore better to replace it.

    Follow the line from the clutch master cyl. It will lead you to the cyl. It's mounted on the drivers side of the bellhousing ('thought you were there already!!)

How do you do you bleed a clutch line on a 1993 jeep wrangler?

Just like you would bleed brakes. Fill the reservior with brake fluid, open the bleeder screw and have a friend press the clutch pedal in. Close the bleeder screw and let up on the clutch. Do that until the clutch pedal has a good feel. Be sure to check the reservoir frequently as they don't hold much fluid and if you let it get low you'll **** more air into the system.

I have to pump the clutch to get into any gear. Where is the clutch reservoir and from where would I bleed the clutch?

Master is on the firewall next to the brake master. Bleed valve should be on the slave on the bellhousing. If it was working and now feels low or in need of bleeding likely you have air in the system but that cannot get there unless there is a leak. Carefully inspect the master (often leaks into the passenger compartment where the rod from the pedal goes through the firewall) as well as the line and slave. If you find seepage anywhere, replace that part.

Where is the bleed valve for clutch on a 1991 jeep wrangler

1. Fill master cylinder reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. Raise and support vehicle. Attach bleeder hose to bleeder screw on bleed line of slave cylinder. See Fig. 1 (attached in link) . Place other end of hose in glass container 1/2 full of brake fluid. Loosen bleeder screw while holding bleeder screw fitting.

2. Have an assistant depress clutch pedal to the floor. Tighten bleeder screw and release clutch pedal. Repeat bleeding procedure until fluid entering container is free of bubbles. DO NOT allow reservoir to run out of fluid during bleeding. Refill clutch master cylinder reservoir.

CAUTION: DO NOT allow bleed line to bend or flex when loosening
bleeder screw.

Regardless of if it's aftermarket or factory they all have a bleed screw. Open the screw and have someone push down on the clutch. close the screw when pedal is still all the way down. Repeat "till no air comes out of screw. During the process don't permit the master to run dry or you will have start all over again.
