Who's ready for a dumb question?

So for the last few weeks I have been chasing problems around on my YJ. So all other issues resolved I have one that has been plaguing me. I replaced the slave cylinder and bench it (twice) most if not all the air should be out of it. When I press the clutch in and it is in first gear it will grind and grab. I pulled the engine and checked the clutch ( also make sure I didn't put in backwards). I reset the pilot bearing after I found it out of the fly wheel. Would not having the pilot bearing set right one the flywheel cause it to grab and grind or am I looking for a new clutch.
So I decided to name my jeep Christine, first after my wife second after the Steven King book, sooner or later one or both may kill me!!

You've still got air in the master, Needs to be bled just like bleeding breaks, need to have 2 people and make sure you keep your resevoir full.

Pedal down open bleeder, close bleeder, release pedal and repeat should have it after about 3 times
