My clutch slave cylinder failed on my 76 mk IV and I replaced it with a new
lucas part from spitbits. My first attempt at bleading the clucth hydraulic
system was a complete failure. I decided that since I had the front end up in
the air on jack stands, that I would never get all the air out of the slave
cylinder. Today I jacked the back end up and tried to get to it, no luck, had
to jack front and back up to get to the slave cylinder bleed. I was able to
get it nearly level, backend just a little higher. Now if I drive it, I can
get it shift smoothely if I double clutch. Must still have air in the Slave
cylinder. I also rebuilt the master cylinder and tested it on the car.
Are there any tricks to bleeding the spit clutch hydraulics. The only thing I
can think of is taking the slave out again and pouring it full on the bench?!
Whish I did that when I first installed it.
Thanks in advance.
