Glazing over the thread I saw some people have issues with vacuum bleeding....

The factory manual (at least for the SVT) recommends a pressure bleed where fluid is removed from the resevoir and forced up through the system from the bleeder. Considering the difficulty in bleeding a slave cylinder that is also a throwout bearing I'd consider it a necessary practice to bleed the clutch in this manner.
When discussing matters of vex, be prepared to be treated as the vexer.
