For What It's Worth
R & R clutch slave

I wish I had found these listings before attacking my 87 syncro westy. I found that a "Mighty-Vac" pump drawing fluid from the bleeder valve on the slave worked just fine. I lubed the bleeder threads with anti-sieze to help seal the threads when loose. Once there are no more bubbles entering the slave, I tightend the bleeder and pumped the clutch pedle about a dozen times to get the remaining air out of the master cylinder.
