Can't bleed the master or slave (t-56)
« on: September 07, 2013, 01:47:27 AM »
I finally got my engine fired up . I went to go bleed the clutch and haven't had any luck . I have looked around and couldn't find a thread that was helpful for me . So here is the issue ..I backed the bleeder out and no fluid came out even with someone pushing the clutch in and out . I got no pressure on the pedal nor any fluid out . I then cracked up the line that goes to the slave , no fluid  there .  Yes the Reservoir is full . I am using a ram slave Cylinder with the wilwood kit from Hinson speed , I have the adapter on there to make it sit up right and its suppose to be the already modded master . This is on a turbo Fc . Please help me if you can thank you !

The pushrod should be elongated in the pedal clevis to give the maximum "throw" available. This will ensure the piston is traveling past the reservoir entry port. Slowly push the pedal to the floor to fill the master cylinder bore. A typical procedure would be to slowly pump the pedal three times, hold the pedal to the floor on the final push, open the bleeder valve to allow the air to escape, and close the valve when pressure is relieved. Repeat the process until only fluid exits the bleeder.

We offer a remote bleeder extension that will help with the process. Please see the following link for more information. http://www.hinsonsupercars.com/p-1230-tick-performance-remote-clutch-speedbleeder-line.aspx

*Note - Some cylinders come with a "cover" or "plug" over the reservoir port. Make sure the fluid is not resting on top of such a cover.

Clutch hydraulics are fairly simple in design, so if you're having problems, we suggest that you find a fresh eye to help you see it from a new perspective. Translation - There no "trick" to making it work.

Have fun with the install, and thank you for the purchase from www.HINSONMotorsports.com.
