Default mcleod clutch install, pedel doesnt have any pressure

a custome installed this clutch with a new hydralic line and brought it to me with no pedel. could it be that he put it in wrong and the slave isnt pushin on something right? the clutch just falls to the floor and wont lift itself back up after you push it down. any ideas? it doesnt get any pressure when you pump it either.

proper way is hard to do but requires 2 people and that is to have on under the car cracking the bleeder screw when you press and hold the clutch and then tighten it back before you release the peddle

the bleeder screw is located right above the clutch line it is a 7/16 size and you can get to it 1 of 2 ways 1 being using a 1/4 inch drive ratchet and 7/16 socket (thats the hardest way possible) the 2nd is to take a punch find the bleeder and dent your trans tunnel and then roll your carpet up and take a 1" hole saw and cut the trans tunnel and bleed it there and byt eh 2nd way you can bleed by yourself


now for optional ways is a mityvac which requires you fill the res with fluid and insert the mityvac and hose with right tip on it down into the clutch line hole in bottom of the res and pull a 10nm vac no more than that and then release pressure and pull the line out and fluid will fall into the line but this will not bleed the whole system and has a risk of blowing the seals in your master cylinder

your best bet is to buy a remote bleeder line and drop the trans and let the input shaft rest on the bellhousing while you install the remote bleeder in place of the factory bleeder and then do the first way mentioned which is one cracking the bleeder while one presses the clutch and PS. use DOT4 not 3 and make sure the res stays full the entire time while bleeding so after 3 cracks refill and repeat this will take 30mins or so

sorry if this sounds confusing but i havent slept in a few days and am running on COFFEE
