I recently replaced my clutch master cylinder. I had fairly good pressure prior to doing the repair.

I then replaced the rotors and brakes. The vehicle has not moved. I went to bleed the clutch at the slave using a capri vacuum bleeder. The bleeder was not sucking very well but eventually worked until it was just fluid going into the container. I hooked everything up and…. No pressure. Anyone have any idea what my next step is Or suggestions?

You can't really vacuum bleed the clutch... Gotta be pressure or reverse.
Ok, even with it running bubble free into the catch? I’m pretty new at this so I apologize for my ignorance.

I need to get a pressure system then. Always a good excuse to buy more tools 🤣 What pressure level do you folks use to get your system bled? Thanks for the help!

Get a pressure bleeder such as a Motive brand and use your vacuum bleeder in conjunction. It'll speed things up.
