Before bleeding the master cylinder, you must first intall all parts so that you can hook up the master cylinder as soon as it has been bled. The best thing to do is get a manual for your vehicle that explains the do-it-yourself techniques because it will have pictures to go along with the directions.
AnswerBleed the slave, not the master.Bench bleed the master, that's what those hoses are for with the instructions in the box your part came in. The same box need to return the core.

I have an automatic. But (usually) The Slave Cylinder is on the transmission, easily accessible and easy to replace. It's a small thing on the transmission (usually) with a rubber boot with a piston inside. Have to bleed the clutch master cylnder as well. -CE
this is a 2 man job period, top up the master cylinder and pump your petal as you would doing a brake bleed job, there will be a master slave cylinder on the transmission with a nipple on it (I don't know the actual size but I believe its 5/16" or so) it will look and feel like a grease nipple, just crack that open and shut it when the petal hits the floor, repeat as nesscary, don't forget to keep toping the clutch master cylinder The slave clyinder on my 1991 F 150 does not have a bleeder nipple !
The clutch bleeding is similar to bleeding brakes. Although you must be sure the clutch cylinder is higher that the bleed fittings and if you can't get it to bleed you may have to purchase a tool at you local parts store that will force bleed the system. This will pull the air out of the system and pull the fluid in. Always be sure to keep the master clutch reservoir full at all times.
