It' been a while since I have done this, but you must find the slave cylinder for the hydraulic clutch. On the top of the cylinder is an Allen head screw. It's hard to get to and you can't really see it from under the truck. Open the screw and have someone press down on the clutch. Tighten the screw before they let the pedal back up. Once the pedal is up, open the screw and have them press it again. Do this several times to get the air out of the line. The line will also bleed itself with use as the air will come to the top of the reservior with use. Good luck.

IF THERE IS NO LEAKS ON THE SYSTEM,VACUUM BLEEDER IS THE KEY IS TRUE THEY SAY,IF THERE IS NO LEAKS AND ALL INSTALLED,PRESS THE MASTER CYLINDER BYY HAND JUST TO GET FLUID INTO THE SYSTEM ONCE THE MASTER RESERVOIR IS EMPTY REFILL ,THEN REMOVE THE SLAVE CYLINDER AND DISENGAGE FROM THE FORK THAT IT IS FREE THEN VACUUM BLEED FROM THE TOP NOT BOTTOM THE GOOD THING ABOUT IT IS NO PRESSURE INVOLVE LIKE THE OLD SCHOOL STYLE,MAKE SURE WHEN YOU BLEED IT THE VACUUM PUMP RESERVOIR SHOULD BE FULL THAT SHOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH BLEEDING ON THE SYSTEM

As i believe, from experience of owning one, 1984 is when the hydraulic clutch came into place. You shouldn't need to bleed the clutch on an 83' S10. Not unless its not the stock transmission.

The clutch is hydraulic operated, there is no cable.
