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.

Thanks!
Jason

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

PHX?,
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.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
