I think can think a million things I'd rather do than bleed the McLeod hydraulic clutch (mounted on the front of my top-loader) because I'm terrible at it. In the past, I have tried to use a Mighty-Vac to suck the fluid from the reservoir but haven't had much success (I have a tough time getting air out of the lines). Does anyone have advice on what is the best way to bleed the clutch?
Ok....I had a little help at the Army Craft shop and to say that it's a two man job is an understatement. In the past I have tried to use a Mightyvac with very little success. I think my problem was not bleeding the brake cylinder first before I moved on to the t-o bearing.
Regardles of what I have done in the past, the method we used as simple enough...First we bleed the hyrdaulic cylinder, then we bled the t-o bearing. It took about 5 minutes total.
Not sure how the mightyvac could be used for bleeding either one so I will stick to using the vac for bleeding the brakes and pass on using it for bleeding the hyrdo clutch.
