    i dont think so, it would pull the seals before you got much fluid out. you could cut a hole in the tranny tunnel, and open the bleeder screw and run fluid through it to flush it. or jack it up and maybe be able to reach the screw. maybe.

    Correct. You can reach the bleeder without cutting the tunnel. Two man job though.

    MityVac is amazing for bleeding the clutch. Sticky up top on the MityVac bleeding procedure.
