    The bleeder should go on the top, you will never get the air out if not, can you switch the bleeder and the hose ports around like your old one? Someone could have put the bleeder in the wrong hole.

    I could never get it to bleed in place anyway
    had to pull the slave and hold it at an angle

    MJ: im sure if i search i would find out but while were on the topic /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif do i just bleed it like i would a brake caliper? & you found it best to hold the slave in your hand, rather then mounted to the bellhousing?

    yup like a brake cylinder only easier

    I could never get it to bleed
    so i read instructions
    they say to unbolt it and hold at angle
    makes it slightly easier to reach both the pedal and the bleeder while bleeding alone /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
