The slave cylinder is attached to the throw-out bearing which is hydraulic. So when bleeding this system gravity bleeding is not going to cut it. You need to bleed this like you would a brake system, by pumping the clutch and holding the pedal while opening and closing the bleeder valve. This is a lot easier to do on the bench than in the car. This will take a while to get completely bled out.

There are videos on you tube on how to bleed this system. You may be taking the clutch master off and bench bleeding it first, just like a brake master cylinder.
