Hydraulic clutch bleeding

(1994 Chevrolet S10)
in Portage, IN on November 11, 2010
There does not seem to be an easy way to bleed this system. Would it not be easier to remove the slave cylinder where you can get at the bleeder and then re-install the slave cylinder? Thank You

Please re-read the post. The slave is where the bleeder is and is very hard to get to which is why it might be easier to remove the slave temporlaraly , bleed and re-install the slave.

if you take slave off you will just blow it a part you have to put in clamp or something to bleed

open te bleeder with the cap off until all the air is gone. we use a vaccuum bleeder that works great. it takes a little time but works with the gravity bleeding.

I saw a video today on youtube where a guy made a hole in the clutch master cylinder cap and put a standard tire valve stem in it, pressurized the system and closed the bleeder. Sound reasonable?
