1993 Ford Ranger hydraulic clutch problems

1993 Ford Ranger XLT, manual trans.,4.0,

My nephew replaced the clutch in his truck but said he had to release the fluid from the slave to put in a new throw out bearing, he has put everything back together but he said that he can't get the slave to bleed out so the clutch will work. Does anyone here have any ideas? Thanks for any suggestions

Bleeding a clutch is much like bleeding a brake system. Just take your time. You wont be able to feel the pressure like you can with brakes, but you should be able to see something moving to indicate you are making progress. The bleeding procedure does say that if you have the quick connect type line to the slave cylinder that it can trap air and OEM's recommend replacing that line to eliminate the quick connect.
Hope this helps ya,

I believe the pressure plate needs to be re-set on these things. Do you know if the pressure plate (old or new) has "refer to service manual" stamped on it?? Look close @ the old one & let us know!!

Bleeding the clutch

You will need to reverse bleed it by forcing fluid from the bleeder to the master. You will need a special tool cost around $500.00.
