ax5 issues

Alright so I'm helping my brother try to figure this issue out. He got a used transmission from a pick n pull type of place and replaced his old one. He got everything I'm, but he is not able to shift into any gears and when you depress the clutch, there's little resistance. At first I thought we had to bleed the clutch at the slave cylinder. When we were looking, we couldn't find a bleeding screw. I was reading on it and some people say the unit is sealed. I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on this issue? Thanks

By the way this is on an 98 wrangler se. Not sure the year that the new ax5 came from but it is identicle. I searched all over the transmission but I haven't been able to find a bleeder.

There is no bleeder screw.

You have two options pump the pedal until the air has worked its way out of the system or use a hand vacumn pump to pull a vacumn on the system drawing the air out ( don't pull over 20"s of vacumn or you'll pull air past the cylinder seals ) Hopefully air in the clutch hydralic system is the only problem.

I bought a used master/slave assembly that had air in the system. It was almost new off a wreck and I got it cheap. Knowing the absence of a bleeder, I reverse bled it. Kinda like bench bleeding a brake master cylinder. I topped off the reservoir, my son held the MC up high while I had the slave down low, I then pushed in on the slave plunger and let it return out. I cycled it like this until my son stopped seeing air bubbles in the MC. Then I lightly tapped the slave and tubing with a screwdriver handle and cycled again. I did this until we stopped seeing air bubbles. Important: make sure everything runs downhill including the slave so no air can get trapped. We installed it on his Jeep and it has worked great for 6 months. You could probably do the same on the Jeep, just pull the slave.

Just an update. It will go into gear in 2H when the car is off. So I decided to put it in reverse when it was off and start the jeep with the clutch depressed. The jeep jolted back. This means that the clutch is not engaging? Any opinions?
