Ok how did you bleed the system?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

Put fluid in the master cylinder first and then the slave and put everything back together and then put fluid in the resovars. Start pumping clutch and trying to bleed cylinder but not getting any pressure.

Are you posting the procedure to my email or where can I get it ???
Expert:  HondaPlatinum replied 8 years ago.

1.Get a long rubber hose to fit snug over the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder

2.Submerge that hose in a new bottle of dot3 brake fluid .Put that bottle in a drain pain with the hose in it it can get messy.

3.Open the bleeder on the slave cylinder

4.Take another bottle of dot3 brake fluid and turn it upside down in the clutch master

5.Pump the clutch pedal by hand 5 to ten times always checking there is fluid in the master.You cna not let any air get intot the system so always check the master level while bleeding.Continue to pump the clutch pedal till you go through almost the whole bottle of break fluid.

6.Close bleeder at slave cylinder.

Should have a pedal now any little bit of air trapped will cause you to have no pedal very tempermental this system.
