We tried that, took the screw all the way out of the slave cylindar and tried
the pressure bleeder, still no fluid.  Any other car would have spurted fluid
from here to Kalamazoo with the screw all the way out of the car (think it was
sitting on the radiator at the time) , but Jeff's did zero.  Very odd indeed...
 We're guessing that the passage to the bleeder screw is jambed up with some
nasty gunk, but have no idea how to check such a hypothesis!
