92 Wrangler 2.5L clutch bleed screw
I replaced the clutch master cylinder today. I need to bleed the clutch but am unable to break the bleed screw loose. As far as I know I am doing it wrong. What part turns? Is it the small nipple (1/4") or the wide nut (1/2") or the 7/16 nut? I am the third owner and the previous owner never had to do it.

Hey Jason...

Ok so put the 7/16 on where it goes but do not turn it...

The part that you are loosening is the 1/4 and you should be turning it towards the transmission (assuming it is the same setup as mine) so yeah turn the 1/4 and your good

Thanks for the help. I'll hopefully finish it up tonight. I got the master cylinder replaced but the bleed screw didn't have a dust boot over it so I think the real issue will be breaking it loose.

No problem, I just replaced mine twice in a week (first one was bad) so I know how it is

Soak it in penetrant first. I prefer Kroil, but PB Blaster works well too. Don't use WD40 - it's useless. Use a 6-point socket, not an open-end, box-end or 12-point. If it doesn't open readily, let the penetrant soak in longer. It might take a couple of days. Finally, if nothing else works, heat around the fitting as best you can with a torch and then try. If it still doesn't open, add penetrant as it cools and repeat the cycle several times.
