    Bleed clutch again after break in?

    I installed an ls7 clutch kit and new slave cylinder last summer and just finished breaking it in before i put it into storage. I bled the clutch system before initially driving it of course, but I didn't do it before i put it into storage. A friend of mine recommended that i bleed it after break-in as well. The new clutch has about 550 miles on it, should i bleed it once more when i get her on the road in may?

    if you bled it before driving on the new clutch, and you were breaking it in so you were driving easy, and only 500 or so miles for that matter, then what would we be the benefit of bleeding it again. seems overkill to me. someone plz enlighten me???

    I can't see any specific reason to bleed after clutch break in, but I'm all for frequent preventative maintenance clutch bleeding, so go for it! The cleaner and fresher the fluid the better it will perform.
