hydraulic fluid


Asked by Hinz Apr 27, 2011 at 06:48 PM about the 1967 Austin-Healey Sprite

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 67 sprite with the 1275 motor, I
replaced the slave cylinder now I need
fluid. Should I be using hydraulic fluid like
for a jack? I tried power steering fluid but
there's no pressure.

Okay... making things worse... I used power steering fluid... connected a hose to the bleader and kept it tight... filled the master and pumped... absolutely no pressure... cracked the bleader and pumped nothing... I made sure the push rod for the master was moving when I pushed the clutch... but still no pressure... please help... and I attempted to remove the master but there is a bolt on the bottom that I can't get a wrench on...
