sorry i was at the gym, im sure your a bit frustrated. the bleeding process can take hours, but if theres fluid on the base of the slave its more than likely bad. they arent very expensive last i checked, so replace it and try again. post results up here when your done. and as for the bleeding... there a cheater way to bleed if you want it, ive used it a few times. you can take a piece of small diameter, clear rubber hose, and put it on the bleeder, i would suggest you have this hose about... 5 feet long. open the bleeder, and suck on the hose like a straw. when the hose has about 2 feet of fluid in it, have a buddy close the bleeder, and at this point, your clutch should be bled. its not exactly the best method, but it works. and it beats the hell out of pumping the clutch for hours. bled my hondas clutch this way, it took 5 minutes.
