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...
