      A:

      Follow this procedure to bleed a clutch master cylinder that has no bleeder valve. The master cylinder must be level in order for all the air to be properly bled from the hydraulic system. On some vehicles the clutch master cylinder is mounted on an angle, so that the end mounted to the firewall is positioned higher than the line connection to the slave cylinder. In cases like this, air will become trapped at the highest point in the system. To bleed these systems, the master cylinder must be leveled by either raising one end of the vehicle or disconnecting the master cylinder from the firewall and pedal linkage so that it can sit level while bleeding the system. Once the master cylinder is level, the above procedure can be used to bleed the hydraulic system. Reattach Master Cylinder to the firewall, reconnect pedal linkage, and check for proper operation.

      A:

      Begin by pumping the clutch pedal 60 to 100 times. Raise the Ram on a hoist, or if you do not have access to a hydraulic lift, use a jack and jack stands. Release the hydraulic pressure in the jack until the car rests on the jack stands. Make sure the vehicle is secure before getting under it. Draw out the old brake fluid in the master clutch reservoir with the syringe or turkey baster. Add fresh DOT 3 brake fluid until it reaches the max fill line. Do not let the fluid level fall below half full during the bleeding process to avoid additional air from entering the system. Locate the bleeder nut on the master clutch cylinder; it will look similar to grease fitting, although it may have a plastic dust cap on it. Make sure it can be loosened with the box-end wrench, but leave it closed for now. Slip clear plastic tubing over the bleeder nut as far as it will go. Make sure it is a snug fit to prevent it from falling off during the bleeding process. Insert the other end of the tube in a jar or bottle with several inches of fresh DOT 3 brake fluid. This prevents air from sucking back into the clutch system. Instruct an assistant to depress the clutch pedal. Open the bleeder nut and allow the old, bubbly brake fluid to run down the tubing. Once flow has ceased close the bleeder nut and have the assistant release the peddle. He may have to manually lift it off the floor. Repeat the same step until only fresh brake fluid flows down the tubing. It will be lighter in color and free of air or bubbles. Depress the pedal several times. It should feel firm. Take the Ram on a short test drive to confirm the clutch's effectiveness.
