apparently theres some funky ass way to bleed those slaves. the guy at trans tech gave me a sheet on it after I got my clutch and shit done, although me and martin were starting to get a pedal before we found out the slave was hooped

Ford Trucks: Bleeding Clutch Slave Cylinders

Q. After clutch slave cylinder replacement, on numerous Ford Trucks, equipped with the within the bell housing design slave cylinder, I've noticed that bleeding this system is very difficult to remove the air.

A. A clutch slave cylinder that is mounted inside the transmission can be pre-bled before installation. Remove the bleeder screw and fill the cylinder with the proper type of fluid prior to installing the unit. When doing this, hold the cylinder and rotate it in different directions. This will allow air to escape out the bleeder screw and/or inlet. After no air is present, reinstall bleeder screw and hold the slave cylinder near access hole in transmission, attach plastic clutch hose. Install the slave on the transmission. In most cases, no additional bleeding is required. Reinstall transmission and verify proper clutch operation. Bleed slave at external bleed screw if the clutch does not operate properly.

not sure if you're putting in a new one or whatnot but thats the general procedure i've always done, like bench bleeding.

I"m in maple ridge and could try and give you a hand if you want. Be out in mission on thursday.

the only shop i've taken a vehicle to in mission is Symons/minute muffler. Not sure if they'd be able to help ya tho.

if i just pop the top off the master and crack the bleeder of the slave to gravitry bleed it will it empty right out. my hood got left open with the cap off the master and i think it has water in it. that was one of the reasons i thought to get it power bled. if'ns i got water in there im sure that could be a problem.
