Help Please!!!!!

OK here is the back story. Was having a hard time getting into gear. So two days ago replaced the slave and master clutch cylinder. Back bled the two and now can't get the peddle to firm up at all. I need to get my truck back on the road by tomorrow so I can get to work. Help please.

Try this method for bleeding: Unclip the slave from the bellhousing. Unclip the master cylinder rod from the pedal linkage (this seems unneccessary, but trust me on this one). With the slave hanging from the line, cycle the slave slowly by hand about 10 times, making sure everything is going "uphill" from slave to master. Reconnect the master cylinder rod and slave to bellhousing and you should be good as far as bleeding goes. Cheers!

Have you checked the condition of the pedal box mainshaft bushings? I'll assume the master cylinder rod bushing is good and there's no slop where it connects to the pedal linkage since you probably got a new one with the new master? Cheers!
