Steve, one of the tricks I learned from a friend. Take
the master cylinder cap off, top off the brake fluid,
pump the clutch as slooooowwwwllly as you can. You'd
be amazed at how many bubbles come up. As you release
the clutch sloooooooowwwwwllly, it will allow the
trapped air to naturally bubble upwards. This works
well on alot of master cylinders as they are higher
than most of the system. Use this method after
bleeding the system and problems still exist. Worked
everytime for me and no extra tools. Did I mention to
do this really slowly?
