Welcome to

Inspect all parts

Slave Cylinder,

Flexible line,

Master cylinder for clutch,

1. Fill master up.

2. Open bleeder valve on slave until all the air is "bled out".

3. Close bleeder valve.

4. Top off with fluid.

Is this one of the trucks where the slave is on the passenger side of the truck??

Getting the slave bled out is not the big thing-----getting the line and the master can prove to be nerve testing.

After bleeding the slave-----jack up the rear of the truck and you may get air bubbles coming back thru the master into the resevoir.

I found this out when I was having clutch issues with my 59 Elky.
(87 Chev truck slave / 88+ chev truck master)
I started to remove the master, and as it tilted down after loosening the attatching nuts------bunch of air escaped into the remote resevoir.

Clutch has been perfect ever since.

On some model Chevys the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder is below top where it will trap air and you must remove the cylinder leaving the line hooked up and hold the cylinder in a position where the bleeder is at the highest point and then open it.
