Well, one trick on bleeding a stock system is to unbolt the master from the firewall, and tilt it so the end is lower than the piston. The angle it mounts on the firewall makes it a bubble trap.

Also, do a search here for "bleeding the clutch", etc. There's many threads. :thumbsup:

If the slave is from an 84 Ranger, does that mean the trans is from an 84 Ranger?:eek: How do you plan to make that handle the 5.0?

Welcome to the forum. :thumbsup:
