Anyone running this clutch line bleeder?

Saw this while browsing. Wonder if it would be better to have over the vacuum bleeding method
 
I don't have one, but I think it's better than nothing.

I'll probably give it a try when/if I get a SS clutch line. Assuming it doesn't break or leak or something, I don't see the harm in trying it. You can always still do the vacuum method if it doesn't work that well.

I am just wondering if you can actually get to the thing. I barely could get my hand up there to put on the JHR line. Let alone a wrench.

IMO save your money on the clutch line. It didn't do anything for me.

I got one, at first it seemed good then after 1 day it was back to crappiness.

Now if one is flushing the fluid out of the system....how to you get it out of the slave cylinder itself? Use the vaccuum pump and pull it out with that?

I built one but it requires you to pull the transmission out to put it in I am not selling them as install for most people would be out of line with cost. It does work but ultimately the last bit of air is still trapped in the slave and only a vacuum can draw that out.

The bleed point is in the engine compartment next to the reservoir.

Do you have a parts list for this mod?? I also do my own work. A Saturday afternoon with the boss and a few parts is OK with me.

Sorry no part numbers. I made the block you see in the bell housing. And custom ordered the brake line hoses. In the picture below you can see the bleeder screw mounted on the firewall next to the brake and clutch fluid reservoir. With the bleeder next to the reservoir it is easy to watch the fluid level while some pumps the clutch master.
