Ok, I searched and found this thread. Heres my 0.02, this thread was helpful and the closest match to my prob. none of the offered solutions helped directly however everybody did get the angry frustrated inventive juices flowing. So thank you.
In 20 years as a professional and home auto mech I have NEVER had to bleed a CMC. So todays the day and yesterday and the day before that. Yeah 3 friggin days.
Its always bothered me that the bleed nipple on a slave cylinder was below the main line. But I've never had to touch one so....
The two trans mount bolts were stripped so I JB welded the SC and kept moving. Then It came time to bleed. Ugly. I went through everything the OG poster went thru except i had the muzzel of the shotun in my mouth and my toe on the trigger when I was about to give up. Just then It hit me, a glimmer of hope. An idea.
Move the SC above the system. but that would involve breaking the JB weld, said the other scarier voice in my head. It worked like a charm ALL bubbles gone.
It also hit me that the SC wasn't hitting the bottom of its travel, doing it by hand ensured full travel and a butt load of bubbles at the end of travel of the SC. videos posted for the next guy that get hit with this as a new FB33 owner
now I just have to tap out the stripped tranny bolts an voila
