Evening everyone, having a bit of self-doubt. Finally got to bleeding the clutch on my Hornet project this evening, and nothing. I can hear a bit of air out of the slave bleed nipple on release, but no fluid. Took the hose off the master cylinder and pumped the pedal- am I right in thinking that fluid should pump out the top even with no hose attached? I'm sure I'm over-thinking this!

yes but remember the chamber needs to be full as the port is halfway down. and some times it needs a bit of help getting some fluid into the ports to get it working. gravity bleed. ie open up the slave bleed and go make a cuppa. make sure the bleed tube is in a container.

If its been out of action for sometime and a bit dry inside ports I have found by placing a piece of clear tubing (so you can see not to get a mouthful) over outlet of m/c and sucking on it to get things moving. Once this is done you may find a couple of pumps on the pedal will get things moving.

Thanks chaps. Had a dim moment last night, had to rush out and check that I'd actually put the pin in. I had, and it was pretty sweaty with clutch fluid- so I'll reseal the master anyway.
