I have bled several of them and can tell you they are a bear... I have just taken to leaving the bleeder open on the slave, getting fluid in the line and pumping the crap out of the peddle. I have run a qt of fluid thru them before, then got bubbles. Pain in the butt...So, do it some more :)

Also, make sure the pedal cylinder isn't leaking. Look for fluid on floor of car just to be sure...its rare but they do go

I had to do mine when I replaced the clutch master cylinder and it really was a slog. I pressure bled it and brakes together, but then ended up having my son help finish by manually bleeding the clutch. About a hundred up downs of the pedal later and it worked fine. I've heard that if you vacuum bleed it, hook up a vacuum line and reservoir to the fitting, it is easier; but I haven't tried it.
