This will require a hand. You need an appropriately-sized box-end wrench, a container for the bled brake fluid, clear tubing and clean brake fluid.
Open the reservoir cap and add fluid as needed. Make sure you do not allow the reservoir to empty while you are doing the bleeding! Start at the slave cylinder, which is on the transmission. Put your wrench on the bleed valve and then put the clear tubing onto the outlet on the valve. The fit should be tight enough to make a good seal. Now fill your container with a little bit of brake fluid (enough to completely submerge the end of your tubing). Now one person will pump the pedal a few times and then hold it down while the other person opens the valve to allow fluid to pass through. Close the valve and have the person operating the clutch pedal release the clutch and press it down again. Repeat this cycle until no more air bubbles come out of the slave cylinder. Every other time, have the person operating the clutch pump the pedal a few times before holding it down. Once the slave cylinder is sufficiently bled, repeat this process on the master cylinder. That is all there is to it!

Hope this helps,
matt

My cluch went out on my 1977 truck. how do i bleed my trucks cluch?


There is a bleeder coming out the side of the bell housing near the clutch hydraulic hose. Fill the master cylinder and open the bleeder. It should bleed pretty good by gravity. Youmay have to pump the clutch pedal a couple times to get it started. After it has a steady stream of fluid coming out, close the bleeder. You should be done at this point, but I have had a couple that I had to bleed like brakes...have someoneholdthe pedal down while you open thebleeder then close it again. Then have them pump the pedal a couple times and hold it again. Open and close the bleeder screw, etc.....repeat about 4 times.

Cluch


To bleed the clutch, there is a little slave cylinder next to the transmission, on that slave cylinder there is a bleed nipple. Undo that put a pipe on it that fit nicely, put the other end of the pipe in a jar with some brake fluid. When you have got that right, pump the clutch pedal up&down. but keep a eye on the fluid in the reservoir under the hood, keep pumping the pedal until all the air bubbles are gone. when they have all gone tighten up the bleed nipple without taking the pipe off. then you are done.

Good luck!!

Im having difficulty in bleeding a cluch o a ford


clutch systems bleed just like brakes, if you have an external leak at the clutch master cylinder, then bleeding will be difficult, it should be replaced. I use a two person bleeding system, I fill the master, crack the bleeder screw open and have my 2nd push the clutch down and hold it, then I close the bleeder and tell my 2nd to release the pedal, repeat until no air is present.

Bleeding the cluch pedal


Open the slave cylinder bleeder and let it gravity feed for 5 minutes or so, then close the bleeder and have someone pump the pedal, release the bleeder to remove trapped air, repeat as needed until all the air is gone and pedal is firm with no play.
