Hydraulic System Bleeding
Brake fluid is extremely damaging to paint. If fluid should accidentally touch painted surface, immediately wipe fluid from paint and clean painted surface.
- Fill clutch master cylinder reservoir with brake fluid and keep at least one-half full of fluid during bleeding operation.
- Remove bleeder plug cap on top of the clutch operating cylinder (slave cylinder).
- Attach a vinyl tube (2) to bleeder plug of the clutch operating cylinder, and insert the other end into container (3).
- Depress clutch pedal several times, and then while holding it depressed, loosen bleeder plug about one-third to one-half turn.
- When fluid pressure in the cylinder is almost depleted, retighten bleeder plug.
- Repeat this operation until there are no more air bubbles in hydraulic line.
- When bubbles stop, depress and hold clutch pedal and tighten bleeder plug to 6 ft. lbs. (8 Nm).
- Then attach bleeder plug cap.
- After completing bleeding operation, apply fluid pressure to pipe line and check for leakage.
- Replenish fluid into reservoir up to specified level.
- Check clutch pedal for -sponginess-. If found spongy, repeat entire procedure of bleeding.
