Bleeding the clutch
Trying to replenish all of the fluids and I ended up ingesting air into the clutch line (and also into my Mityvac).

What it the trick to bleeding the clutch? The wrench only has about 45 degrees of movement, but I need to turn it 45 degrees to get decent flow. Is there a trick that I am missing, or does it just suck (pun intended)?

Yes it sucks I never allow the master cylinder to go empty when I do mine, save a lot of anguish.

I installed speed bleeders it does help

Was able to successfully bleed using an 8mm socket and a really long extension piece. I did my best to catch the bleed-off with a bucket under the bleed screw and lined the area with rags and a drop cloth. Got the idea from the Steve Saunders video in which he "burps" the master cylinder at the banjo bolt.

Was also able to disassemble the Mityvac and rinse all the DOT4 off of the internals. Fairly straightforward.

It's always a pain to get the last bit of air out, I forgot about the doing it through the banjo, had to do that myself one time.
