    had issue bleeding my clutch, I tried reverse bleeding, power bleeding, vacuum bleeding etc etc as well as a few other known methods.

    I decided to make a remote bleeder.
    You will need:

    2 x 3/8 unf 24tpi make brake pipe nuts
    1 x 3/8 unf joiner
    1 x length 3/16 copper pipe
    1 x bleed nipple

    cut pipe to length required and put one nut on before flaring the end with your fav brake flare tool.
    fit this to the joiner and screw in bleed nipple to other side if joiner:

    do same the other end:

    you'll end up with this:

    fit one end to your slave cylinder:

    and other end to bulkhead:

    bleed anyway you prefer without crawling under your landy :)

    mine bled first time after install, hope this helps

    I have always got away with gravity bleeding but I do like that, they are a bugger to crawl under and get at. I have logged that to the memory bank to maybe use one day.

    thats very neat!

    i have just done mine the method i used was cut out a rear wash water pipe from a scrap car, put the pipe on the end of the bleed nipple then ran it back to the master cylinder - kept pumping untill all the air was out - perfect:)
