Slightly confused about Clutchmasters' vacuum bleeding technique. Why would there be fluid in the line between the stopper and the catch can? There's no fluid in contact with the stopper, since there's air above the max fill line on the reservoir. If using a fluid evac, I wouldn't run a catch can to begin with.I pulled vaccum thru the reservoir while pumping the clutch pedal 20+ times. Several times over. You can fit a cork or rubber lid to fit reservoir Look up clutchmasters bleed procedure, it works. Vaccuum thru bleed line didn’t get all the air out when I did my clutch job. I let res get too low and lost all pressure, did this bleed and no issues for 15k.
The rdu is a 10mm allen, ptu is t50 or t55 torx. For trans I cut a 1” piece off the allen wrench 8-10 mm, cant remember,😉to fit in plug then use straight wrench to turn it. A regular bit wont fit in that space.
Let me see if I have the rest of it straight though.
- So I have a pressure bleeder with a QD cap. Since the clutch line has zero fluid currently, I should pressure bleed the clutch line first to fill with fluid. Then I close the clutch bleed valve.
- I can plug then a fluid evac into the QD and run shop air. Clutch bleed valve stays closed.
- I pump the clutch pedal 30 times, repeat as many times as needed (would I be able to see bubbles in the opaque reservoir?).
- When finished, release vacuum, top off fluid, and pump up both clutch and brake pedals.
