I've used a Mitivac to bleed the clutch before, HOWEVER, I was much more successful using a big syringe-type bleeder you can find at a FLAP. You can usually find them in the pre-mix section obviously to pre-mix 2-smoke gas.

Make sure the bleeder is teflon taped and the syringe is pretty full, remove the cap off of the res and make sure it's almost empty and fire the fluid through the bleeder into the res. Close the bleeder, refill (or suck it from the res) and try again. Go into the car and see how the clutch feels.

I've had much more success doing it that way solo than with a mitivac.

-Randy

BTW, the teflon tape trick works on the brakes as well...

I just hit my crank pulley with a impact gun with a little blue locktight to keep it on but able to come off with the inpact again if need be and it is just fine.

^Impact gun does not fit with engine in vehicle, even with radiator out there is no room. Anyhow, this is what I did, floor jack handle, two 3/8" ratchet extension, 15mm wrench stuffed into jack handle. Worked great, jacked handle long enough to make contact with garage floor.

Says who?
Ive done several TB jobs and have taken the pulley off with a 3/8 drive snap on impact which is much smaller than most 1/2 inch drives and it still has enough ass to do mostly anything youd ask of it.
Not all tools are created equal (no pun intended, lol)

My comment applied to 99.5% of us with 1/2" impact guns.

Which model do you have? I would like to check the overall length.

Im pretty sure I could get a impact on mine if I pulled rad and grill...maybe I'd have to jack motor up Alil and use a swivel bit....Mine is a GC8 Tho.


I usually just put it in gear and use a breaker bar and if that doesn't work pull starter and jam flywheel with something. Never really had a issue

I feel like I could get my 1/2in in there too, but its way overkill at 1100lb-ft in reverse...
I usually use my MG325 though which is rated at 325lb-ft

A 1/2" impact does not fit PERIOD, unless you have the snap-on 3/8" $350 this guy is talking about.

I feel like my IR 1/2" would fit too because its not much longer and I have low profile impact sockets which are shorter length (it would probably only grab the top 1/2-2/3 of the bolt head), and also swivel impacts.

I wasnt implying all 1/2" drives would fit and ive never even thought to use it as the mg325 was already in my arsenal. Im a flat rate tech so I use 3/8 air impact 3/8, 1/2, and 1/4 electric impacts alot for disassembly. Snap on had me by the balls for a minute there lol but I can tell you this it was worth every penny. I increased my work output by roughly 27%....

My Mac 1/2 gun fits fine with a short socket and a universal joint. I did buy this cool new thing off the Cornwell. Truck the other day I want to try for subie crank bolts. It's called a powerbar basically a 1/2 drive on a short lever with a pivot to a big rod. Put the socket on, lever at 90 degrees, hit the big rod with a hammer and its supposed to make up to 600ft lbs depending how hard you hit it. I've got small arms and am flat rate so I wanna try an bang out timing belts without pulling the radiator lol

Well back to the clutch pedal issue, I have tried bleeding the system with a humanoid, and also with a vacuum bleeder with no luck, the pedal is stuck to the floor, any ideas before I crack the trans open?

Without reading back through all this. Pull the pedal up by hand. Pump it a half dozen times. You may have to pull it back up. If the pedal pumps up and starts to feel more normal then let it sit ten minutes. If its soft again you have air in it. If its still normal feeling you might be good. You usually have to pull it back up after bleeding

This is exact what I did but still I am not feeling any resistance.

Press the pedal to the floor, second person opens the bleeder momentarily to "burp" off the air, while the 1st person is still holding the pedal to the floor.
Close the bleeder and the 1st person pulls the pedal up from the floor. Press down again, 2nd person cracks the bleeder again momentarily. 1st person pulls the pedal up and repeat this until you start getting fluid at the bleeder but there is no fluid coming out of the bleeder and no increase in resistance, the clutch is stuck to the floor.

If there is no fluid coming out of the bleeder it is most likely that you do not have the system fully assembled. Make sure that everything is where it should be for the clutch to operate under normal conditions.

I only took apart the slave cylinder and put it back together, I have not fiddled with the rest of the system.

I had a similar issue, I'd pump the slave but no fluid came out. Took the slave off the trans, bench bleeded the slave, then installed. Still had to bleed it some more but IIRC that's how I fixed my similar issue.

Bench bleeding the MC this morning, next I will do the slave, by reversing the tool pump ports I can either do vacuum or inject fluid (reverse bleeding) into the system, pics shows reverse bleeding method. Only reason why I have the hose drawing fluid from the reservoir is to avoid having to empty it and refill it constantly but it is better to draw fluid from a new container, less aeration.

Agggh, about to call AAA and have the car towed to dealer, once installed in the car I am back to square one, it is like the MC is blocking the fluid, I cannot pull fluid out of bleeder or inject fluid into bleeder (reverse bleed)........

I assembled the system off the car, reverse bled (injected fluid thru bleeder) and confirmed there is no blockage. However I just pull air with conventional bleeding, no fluid comes out of bleeder just air. I have zip ties on all tubing and teflon at the bleeder, so I am pretty sure the setup is air tight.

Showing below the reverse bleeding injecting fluid thru bleeder, I did not take pics performing conventional bleeding (pulling fluid thru bleeder). At this point I am ****ing clueless and ****ing frustrated....
