How can you _successfully_ bleed hydraulic clutch system on 89
TrooperII? I installed master cylinder kit and slave cylinder kit now
system is so full of air. I have Motive Universal Power Bleeder so I
would like to use it. Maybe to bleed everything right on the car without
removing for bench bleeding. But I would like to hear _any_ method that
_surely_ works on this car. Or where to get the detailed instructions from.
On the many hydraulic clutches I have bled this has worked for me.
Fill M/cylinder and tighten bleeder screw on slave cylinder. with your
hand rapidly push the clutch pedal up and down 1/2 inch or so. I usually
bend down outside the door and reach in to do this. If it was possible
to watch the m/cylinder while this is being done you would see the air
bubbles rising up.
Thanks for info. I'll try it. The only thing is the M/C is not
the highest point in this hydraulic system so I am not sure if
it will work. This car has a piece of hard line running from damper
cylinder towards slave and most of it runs higher than the M/C unit.
I read it somewhere on the net and noticed on my car. They say the
biggest trick is to get fluid into that line. I have this pressure
bleeder so I will probably try to utilize it with your method.
The way I understand it you release air and let fluid in that is
trapped in highest point of the system which is also part of M/C
where it connects to reservoir. Every time you wiggle the pedal air
goes out up reservoir fluid drops in and more air inside M/C shifts
toward highest point and so on until there is no more air in M/C.
Have no time right now and it is too cold here so will try in a few days.
