I didnt realize there was another page. Cause i was replying through my phone and nothing was showing up. Do you have a vaccum bleeder or are you gonna do it old school? You will still get a little air if your going old school with it. As long as your clutch feels like it used to and isnt just mushy like there is no pressure than you should be good.

Yeah i didnt bench bleed it either and i went the old school way and just pumped the clutch and kept bleeding it. Took me about 20 minutes i believe. I hope this helps. Did you have any other questions?

Hows the clutch pedal feel? does it feel like it used to. As long as its not super soft you should be good. Cause i still had a little air when i did mine.

How much did you drain out of the reservoir, because there are actually two sides it splts for brakes and clutch. I did not need to bleed my brakes i only had to bleed my clutch. You could try starting the car in neutral, push in the clutch and try to put it into first gear.

thanks for the help man.
it turns out, the mityvac sucks air in no mater what. (at least mine does) it wasn't pulling air from the actual system, it was pulling it from the untie and nipple threading.

i closed it back up and put everything back together and took it out for a spin, the clutch felt better than ever! first gear catches A LOT sooner than it once did! great pressure from the pedal itself. brakes felt good. looks like i'm all set. i a little more testing tonight and i'll call it good.

rep coming btw.
