Keep the master cylinder full of fluid at all times! Then have someone slowly push the clutch pedal in and hold while you open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder releasing fluid, close the bleed valve ALL the way have the person controlling the pedal quickly let off. Have them pump the pedal five times slowly with about a second or two rest between each pump. You then open the bleed valve again releasing fluid. Repeat this process over and over until you can feel pressure in the clutch pedal again... MAKE SURE TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE FLUID LEVEL! Never let it go empty or you will let air back into the system and have to repeat the process over again also make sure the bleed valve is all the way closed when finished
