The other possibility is that the master cylinder is also shot. If
bleeding it again doesn't work, that's most likely the case. What often
happens is that moisture gets into the system over time and causes
corrosion in both the master and slave cylinders. If the clutch fluid
wasn't changed periodically, I'll bet that's what happened.
When bleeding the clutch, this is the procedure I use:
1- Top off the fluid in the master cylinder with NEW fluid.
2- Attach a drain tube to the fitting and stick the other end in a jar.
3- Open the fitting 1/4 - 1/2 turn.
4- Have an assistant depress the clutch fully and HOLD IT TO THE FLOOR.
5- Tighten the fitting. This prevents air from getting back in.
6- Have your assistant pump up the clutch again.
7- Repeat steps 3-6 until no bubbles are seen and clean fluid is flowing
through the system. Periodically check the fluid level in the master
cylinder and top it off. If the fluid gets too low, you'll have to start
all over again.
8- When you're finished bleeding the system, top off the fluid level.
