Bench bleed a clutch MC

Can anyone give me some tips on how to bench bleed my clutch MC? Is it necessary? I am replacing my clutch mc(leaky)

tube on the valve thats on the end of the slave cylinder, get a container with lke 2 inches of clutch fluid, put the hose from the slave cylinder into the container submerged in the fluid. Then you open the valve and i believe you just have a friend hold the clutch pedal down or have them depress then release and so on making sure the level in the reservoir stays at the rite mark.

Helms manual will help u with this sorta stuff.

no thats regular bleeding

bench bleeding is purcging the clutch before its installed

basically you can make a jig, they have these nipples that screw into the holes of the clutch mc, and you attach a piece of hose to it and put it inside the resevoir cup so the fluid is reciculated, and you pump it a certain way to make sure all the bubbles are gone before you install it

think it would be a good idea to hook up one end of my ss braided clutch line to the MC and bench bleed it so the line is filled filled up before hand or would that be pointless as it would just drain out?

It's not necessary to bench bleed the clutch master. Just installed it, let it gravity bleed, then get a friend and manually bleed it like you would with brakes.

(oh and get the 2nd person to pump the clutch pedal by hand; that whay they have better control pumping and can tell you when you start to get hydraulic pressure)

you can do the bench bleeding part in the car.... like mount it and then bleed the master cylinder alone. it's easier than wrestling with it on the workbench. as for the procedure, loudsubz is correct.

Thanks, I never bothered bench bleeding it. Just installed it and flush the system, it's all good now.

I should took some pics and make a DIY thread, I was tired...maybe next time...

don't worry about it, replacing these parts is easy, anyone who needs a DIY thread would be better off not doing it himself. just glad you got it fixed
