96 S10 clutch system- air -bleeding?

Im I made my clutch pedal assembly for my 32 chevy using s10 parts that were brand new. At one point the system worked great from what i remember but now i feel like i have air in the system. I think this because i have to pump the clutch twice as if to compress what ever air is in there. Im not familiar with the s10 clutch system. I know its all plastic but i can seem to fin a bleed screw on the slave. What should i do.

slave lies below the master

If your master sticks straight out from the firewall, jacking up the rear of the car will help a lot.

I have a hydraulic system from an 86 & 88 Chev 1/2 ton
Had the same problem in the 59-----

Getting ready to remove the master and when I tilted the front down to pull it out----a bunch of air had come up thru it to the resevoir.
(88 master with a remote resevoir)

Did not even crack a line and it has been just fine ever since.
