I am trying to bleed out my clutch right now. I just replaced my master and slave cylinders. I read that you're supposed to bleed the damper before you bleed the slave. Is this right? Also, instead of using the conventional clutch pedal pump bleed method, we're trying to use a shop vac with a special attachment on it to suck out the fluid. Do you think this will work?

You are supposed to do the damper first and then the slave.

Fill reservoir and open the bleeder and let gravity work for 15 min.
Then bleed like normal to get all of the air out. Keep topping off the reservoir! Traditional pumping will take awhile to be patient. I use a "MightyVac" hand held for this job.

You partner will get tired after 50 pumps or so. It take a good long time to get decent pedal. If it seems like it is taking for ever is because it does take forever.

screw that stuff....get rid of the dampener, it'll make your bleeding take 1/2 the time.
