Clutch slave removal

When I did mine I found it easiest to disconnect the rubber line where
it joins the steel line at the frame. I also used copious amounts of
penetrating oil, then use a big hammer on the slave cylinder to remove
it from the tranny. Clean it out while you have it out and accessible. I
tried to bleed mine and found that it was plugged solid and would not
bleed. Take the piston out of the slave cylinder, take the bleed plug
out, dig out all the old crap, and make sure it is clean inside.
