    Here is one!

    How to bleed entire clutch hydro system

    Use a 90 degree spark plug boot.
    At the plug wire boot opening, insert hose that fits snugly and is airtight.
    Open the bleeder just enough that fluid can come out.
    Place the plug side of the boot over the bleeder and the loose end of the hose into a bottle.
    Keep the reservoir full while some fluid drains from the hose.
    Once you've replaced some fluid, re-route the hose up to the reservoir so its end is pointed down and submerged in fluid.
    Use a clip or wire or a helper to hold it in place.
    Pump the pedal a few minutes.
    This forces fluid through the entire system and the air has a chance to escape by bubbling out at the reservoir.

    **the Mityvac pull from the reservoir method cannot pull all air out from the slave. This method can.**

    Thank you!

    I didn't have any trouble bleding my clutch hyros with a mity vac. But I think the slave was already full. So, is your thought that since the hydraulic line at the slave is lower then the bleeder, that a mity vac won't pull the air from the top of the slave? I've never thought of that but it seems like that makes sense to me.

    I've added that info to the Mity Vac bleed procedure for future reference.

    even if the LCA relo brackets are the bolt on style, get them welded on...

    i understand welded would be better but is it really an issue for a car that sees the street pretty much its while life? Never had an issue before, I can see sfcs being different
