Clutch Master Cylinder

Alright.... Ive bout had it with this ford ranger. Its a 94 4.0 4x4 manual and the job started out as a new clutch. During the swap we cracked the slave cylinder bleeder valve and when it was all said and done the clutch pedal had no pressure. Gravity bleeding and pumping the pedal had no effect. Then we tore it down again and replaced the slave cylinder. No change and bleeding still had no effect. Now im in the middle of installing a new clutch master cylinder and Im just wondering am I pissin in the wind or what. More aggravation is that the right master cylinder came from a different year and engine ranger at the parts house (yeah that was fun). Anybody been through anything similar? Is there some simple thing Im missing, I already feel like a ******* so please dont hesitate to tell me anything.

The last ranger i did i had to remove the clutch master from the firewall and point the lines straight up in order to bleed it because the way it sits in there it points downhill and the fill line for the master sat lower than the outlet line. With it pointing straight up it allowed all the air to escape through the reservoir.

bleeding air

I had a similar problem with a S10. I bled the slave cly. a minimum of 20 times and it didn't help. Then I got really pissed one day and instead of jacking it up in the front, I just slid under it and bled the slave cly. with the truck setting level and it started working. I guess it had to have something to do with it setting at an angle. But I was glad that that did the trick. Never had a problem with it after that.

If that don't work. they make a power bleeder.
I also have heard of people tapping into a brake bleeder to the slave bleeder and reverse bleeding them.
