    I've had trouble bleeding clutches in the past as the air seems to get stuck in the master and not come down. you just need to keep doing it and it will come right in terms of bleeding. There is no substitute in my experience for the old fashioned method - one on top one below. Open bleed valve pedal down, close it pedal up. Repeat until pressure is adequate.

    Only other thought though is that if its all new, there will be adjustment on the master and the slave, so if the air is gone you can adjust it that way.

    Is this true? Would you need to get all four wheels off the ground? I would have thought that the action of the differentials on the front and rear would mean that you only needed to get one wheel from each axle off the ground... maybe I have missed the point?

    I certainly only lifted one on each axle when I was testing my transfer box to find a fault that only occurred when it was driving down the road.

    Seriously John... couldn't see the reason why. The motor is not going to jump into difflock and even if it did then it wouldn't go anywhere with one wheel of each axle raised. The axle itself is supported in a custom made cradle that is more stable than a simple axle stand so unless the diff itself gives out then all is well! :D

    Excellent methods for snapping half-shafts - shock loads. Ideal.
