RE: [DML] bleeding the clutch.

  Try soaking the fitting with PB Blaster. I'm told it is much better than 
Liquid Wrench. Then tap it a bit & see if it can be loosened.    Drive

I just installed the new braided steel clutch line.  About 20 minutes.
Now the real problem.. Went to bleed my clutch.. Tried and 8 mm, and
Tried a 5/16.  No luck because somebody had stripped the thing. Next
problem.. Trying vice-scripts isn't working because it appears it's so
darn corroded that it doesn't want to loosen.  Been spraying de-rusto
solvent on it for a week now and still won't let go.. So.. it's
looking like I might have to replace the slave cylinder or something.
How difficult is is to replace the slave cylinder?  Do I have to take
the intake off..  That area is a major pain to get to.. I can't see
much down there so I can't really tell how things go on and off. Any
other way to get the air out of the line because this simple 20
minutes job is turning into too many hours.
