    Lets say I've got a 86 jeep commanche with a 2.5 and t4 and I can't get any clutch pedal. Hypothetical of course. :whistle:

    1st I replaced the slave cylinder with a reman from advance. Bleed lines and no clutch.
    2nd I replaced master clutch cylinder, bleed the lines and no clutch.
    3rd I replaced clutch, pp, and release bearing, still no clutch.

    When I bleed the lines I'm not feeling any pressure at the pedal or any really good blowout at the slave bleeder valve.

    Is it possible I got a bad slave cylinder? Any ideas or suggestions?

    Is there a flex line?
    If so, could have a flap in it just like rubber brake hoses will do on occasion.

    Could be the line. The ends are metal tubing with the center a flex hose.

    How hard should the slave be to push in? I've had it out and can push it in by hand.

    Vacume bleed it. That's what I finally did and it worked great instantly.
