[DML] Re: Problem with new Master Clutch Cylinder

I too, have seen "bad" new cylinders. Often this is because the
cylinder is not properly bench-bled and air is still in the master
cylinder. Pull the clutch mater cylinder off and put it in a vise.
Hook up a small tube from the outlet to the resovoir and pump the
cylinder till the air stops bubbling. If it IS defective you will know
immediatly and you don't have to guess if it is anything else. Once
you do get it working and bench-bled put it back on the car. To
properly bleed the clutch you have to move a lot of fluid through it.
Don't stop when you stop seeing air come out. Keep going and you will
get more air out and a stiffer, higher pedal. Same procedure for the
brakes. Try to use Castrol DOT 4 GTLMA.
