ax15 internal to external slave swap problems

Iím in the process of swapping my internal slave ax15 to an external slave unit. I bought a new slave cylinder and it doesnít come with a bleeder screw. I tried to take what looks like one out of the old slave that came with the trans but what appeared to be a hex head is rounded out. Does anyone know if I can use a bleeder for something like a brake caliper? This has me kind of confused so any help would be awesome.

to bleed a sealed clutch slave cyl, just point the piston down to the ground and pump the pedal a few times with the cap off the master. the fluid will push the air back up. You will have to pump 20 or so times. You may also have to unclip the plastic straps holding the piston in place, pump it out a few, and then press it all the way back in to force any more air out.

You can definitely bleed it without a bleed port. You can't use a brake bleeder because the hole isn't drilled for one. There are a few different versions out there. Some has bleeder screws, some has the plug like OEM and some have no hole for bleeding.

I personally like the set up from Oreilleys. Master, line, and slave in a sealed, pre-bled unit. It's only like $140.

Put it all together (master, line, slave) and bleed it out of the vehicle. You can get the line somewhat straight and the whole assembly hanging vertical and pump the slave pushing the air up out the master.
