The bleeder is a m10 wrench, and the nipple size I couldn't tell you, however it is definitely an m10 bleeder screw.

Order a speed bleeder for the slave. It makes bleeding virtually impossible to screw up.



I picked up an Autozone hand pump bleeder if that's what you mean. Do you need to bench bleed the slave as well or just the master?

I usually just crack the bleeder valve open, give it a few pumps, top off the reservoir, do it again, then let it sit there and basically gravity bleed for a bit. Shut the bleeder, top it off and call it good. I've never had to use a bleeder tool of any sort for the clutch. Maybe the tool you've got now will make it easier. I just never bothered because it wasn't necessary, even on 2g cars with the accumulator.

Oh, and i would suggest you get a DSM fluid reservoir. They're generally abundant in the junkyards. The stock ones on the VR4 are awful stubby little things.

Thanks mitsuturbo,
I have a larger reservoir from my current part and I will be sure to switch over to the larger of the two. I am hoping that this solves a lot of my clutch issues.

Thanks again to everyone for all the help and advice. i will keep this post updated when I install everything.

So I put in all my new parts, M/c S/C and stainless line, and still have some low pedal issues. The clutch master is adjusted to the end of the rod, and I am pretty sure at this point that it has to do with the flywheel or the shimming of the clutch...I don't know what else to do at this point. I will be removing the clutch fork boot to take some pics this afternoon I suppose. Anyone with any helpful advice is appreciated greatly!

Pics of the fork in both positions would help. I'm betting they did not replace the fulcrum or maybe machined the stock flywheel to thin?
