What exactly involves in the clutch alignment tool?
I have a wiring diagram for the wiring harness, can anyone help me with it? I don't have a manual wiring harness for the tranny, but got a donor harness to pull plugs from if needed : http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v663/nikbait/42370731.gif
Is it going to be much easier to bench bleed the master cylinder before installing it? And, how would I take out the pushrod on the mc to bleed the mc? The video I saw on here that shows bench bleeding says not to use the pushrod to bleed.
Alignment tool just fits inside the clutch, then slides the entire assembly onto the engine, holding it in place while you bolt it up.
As for the trans harness, I wouldn't do this swap without the manual harness. That's just me tho.
You really really want to bench (bench just meaning out of the vehicle) bleed the master. Matter of fact, you want to bleed the entire assembly at the same time, with it stretched out. They say not to use the rod as it is half plastic, and you might bend/break it. If you don't want to remove it, hold the rod at the base (where it is metal), and carefully bleed it until you cant move it by hand anymore.
If your using a used set up, drain all the old fluids and flush it out with new dot3 fluid. If you have a new set up, skip this part.
I Drained all the old fluids by taking it apart at the fitting. Be careful, there is a little O-ring there, don't lose it!
Put it back together, & Hang the entire assembly to a post. Fill the reservoir, leaving the cap off. Tap the line from the bottom up to help move any trapped air bubbles. Then start to bleed by pushing the the plunger slowly back and forth until it will barely move anymore. Any air trapped inside will bubble up & out of the reservoir.
