The best way to bleed it is throw it in the garbage can and buy a pre-bled system for around $45.

I've heard of people being able to do it but it takes a long time. I once attempted it but got fed up after an hour of pumping and decided to buy a new one that is ready to install out of the box. Good luck, let us know if you are able to get it bled.

Been there done that. After about an hour, we did get it bled (actually "burped" it back up thru the master), but what a PITA. When the hydros went on the other truck, we went with the pre-bled kit; in and out in about 20 minutes.

But $45? Dang-ol'! That's a smokin' deal; I don't remember finding one for less than about $120.

I bench bled the slave about 6 times and gravity bled the master, put it back together, pumped up the pedal and she was golden. Pretty good for replacing a slave cylinder in a parking lot 200 miles away from my garage lol
