Hey guys,
so im having trouble bleeding my clutch, I've replaced the clutch line with a hpi braided clutch line and the slave cylinder with a nismo big operating slave cylinder, for some reason the clutch pedal is nothing but slack, I've tried bleeding it the normal way but to no avail, anybody know any procedures i must follow when bleeding a system from dry.

Note i have kept an eye on the reservoir level and periodically filled it so it can't be that

thanks in anyone who can help...

Theres going to be a ton of air in the lines, if you have to keep filling the reservoir without actually bleeding any out then its just removing the air from the line. Otherwise, you could try taking the hose off the master, opening the slave bleed valve and filling it with fluid first. then reattach, maybe even take apart the master and fill it with fluid aswel. Is the master new? could be stuffed. I did a slave cylinder seal and 2 weeks later the master went. Just a thought anyways
