Bleeding Clutch Hydraulics! Help! tranny, clutch, slave, and master on '93 2.3L 2WD Ranger. Been trying to bleed for 4 days using the conventional "friend in the cab pumping ( Up.....down....up....down...), with me underneath opening the bleed screw and getting DOT leaked on me for 4 days! I've had it! Help!

There are no more bubbles coming out but clutch wont disengage. I even replaced the slave thinking it was leaking, it's not. The bearing moves at very most the Haynes minimum of 0.42 Inches, but never a mm more, and sometimes less.

Do I need to replace the line between the master and slave like Chilton's says? That makes no sense..!?!

Tonight I am thinking their must be air in the master. It is pointing upright...a perfect place for an air pocket. Next is too mickey-mouse some water-pump-turned-DOT3-pump to force brake fluid into it and hopefully push out some bubbles, but this is messy and may damage seals.

What if I take off the master and invert to so the air comes up to the reservoir when pushed by hand?
