Ruth may still have some self-bleeding bleed-screws
which I have on all my hydraulics.
In a fit of frustration with the slave cylinder one
time, I unbolted the slave cylinder with nylon line
attached, laid it on the garage floor, used the
self-bleeder, and I removed all the air by pumping the
clutch pedal. Sometimes desperate times call for
I have another uncoventional tip for front brakes that
a good friend, Art Baker, showed me.
BTW, keep asking we're here to help if we can.
