Problem with hydaulic clutch system...

I just replaced my clutch master cylinder. The install went well but I cannot bleed the system. The fitting on the TOB that proturdes from the bellhousing will not loosen. I think I if I twist on it too much it will break the tube.

The clutch is mushy but it works, will the system bleed by itself with use if I cant get that fitting loose?

Re: Problem with hydaulic clutch system...

I've never had luck with selfbleeding. Is there any way to hold the tube with a vice grip and try? If you can live with the mushy pedal, you can try to see if it will self bleed.

There is a rubber protector behind the fitting, I will see if that comes off and has a gripping surface.

Try to spray it down for a few days with kroil or some kind of penetrating lube. Here is some advice from experiance DONT FORCE IT TOO HARD!!! If you snap that fitting you have to drop the trans and replace the slave. It happened to me and i wasnt happy at all. GOOD LUCK !!!!!

I got it fixed and forgot to update this... sorry...

I pulled the rubber cap off and used a pair of needle nosed channel lock pliers to hold the bleeder tube.
