Clutch bleeder size

Does anyone know the clutch bleeder size so that I can get a speed bleeder?

I dont know but that thing is a beotch.

I wonder if you took a pic of it installed and sent it to an alert sales guy at the company if they would "recognize" it.

Its odd too, I know I did not get all the air out of it but it works fine? I wonder if it self bleeds back to the clutch master some how?

I think it's the same size as the brakes, if that helps any.
I've been using a manual bleeder with the same I.D. tubing for brakes and clutch.

It's really easy to get to. Remove the floor in the boot. Takes a few minutes but then you can easily get to everything and inspect things well.

My method is use a power bleeder. It pressurizes from the master cylinder side, and unless you drain a couple of quarts of hydraulic fluid you can't run the reservoir dry.
