Bleeding Clutch

Hey im new to this forum but im hoping some jeep experts will help me out. Fixing my moms 88 wrangler with a 4 cylinder. Replaced the clutch master cylinder and can't find the bleeder. Traced the lines to the top of the trans. What is the best way to bleed it? (keeping in mind not in a shop envirnment with lift equipment)

I can't answer your question, I have an auto, but you might want to post the same question in the "Builders Corner" section. They really get in depth.

Good luck.


I tried to be good, but I got bored...

The bleeder should be on the opposite of the tranny as the line.

Had this same problem on my 97. Not sure if it's the same but mine was on top of the slave cylinder(driver side of tranny). I couldn't get any fluid to come out if it so I took the bleeder screw out and let it sit for a weekend and it gravity bleed it's self. If it's the other kind im thinking of, I believe it's an internal slave cylinder which is in the bellhousing around the main shaft and idk how to bleed that. I'm sorry I can't go in to more detail but idk if it's the same set up as mine
