521 clutch master cylinder OK?

Recommended Posts

^^At this point I'm redoing the whole clutch hydraulic system so it'll be all squeaky clean fluid top to bottom. Also I don't plan to run a tube back to the master but rather into partial bottle of new fluid. I think I have to do it that way since I'm bleeding it by myself.

The clutch system is very simple and it is possible to gravity bleed it by opening the bleeder over a catch can and just walk away. Make sure the reservoir is full and the cap is off so it won't hold a vacuum. You can prime the system by pumping it a few times after the bleeder is opened, to get things moving. Don't let the reservoir run out of fluid or you'll have to start over.

 

If you have a helper, you can just bleed it the old fashioned way.

Forgive me if this is a stupid question but can you use a brake master as a clutch master? To my inexperienced eye they look like they do the same thing.
