So I cant figure out what is wrong.

I am in mid 3.4L swap onto an isuzu tranny, and the engine is in and it runs and everything but my trouble was when I went to bleed my clutch.. the line had rusted through

I went and got a new line, and patched the area and Flared the pipes and attached them with no trouble.

when i tried to bleed the clutch for the first time, again, it just keeps pumping air out. the pedal never gets stiffer and the air just keeps coming.

I noticed that the slave only moves probably and inch, maybe a little more. the clutch refuses to bleed.

after about 30 min of trying we decided to see how well the clutch is disengaging (if at all) and when it was in gear with the clutch in you could move the car, the clutch would rub a little but it obviously was disengaging to some extent.

now my question is what do i do? do i need to get a bigger master cylinder? is it the new throw out bearing? (it TO bearing is installed and it is installed correctly) what is the best option?

Thanks, Zach

A lot of people forget that the slave cylinder needs to be bled in a separate step after you've bled the lines. If you didn't, then you must crack the bleed valve on the slave, push the slave rod into the cylinder as far as it will go, tighten the bleeder, and release the rod.

I would have to bleed it after the clutch lines are bled? But the clutch won't bleed air just keeps coming and coming do I have to do it after?

You might have to try bleeding the cylinder at this point, then re-bleed the line, and finish up with re-bleeding the cylinder again since it's at the top of the system where the air will migrate to. Be sure not to "pump" the pedal... just open the bleed valve, have a helper push the pedal once and hold it down while you close the bleed valve. Only then can the helper release the pedal. Repeat as necessary to clear the lines of air. Bleeding the cylinder is as I described earlier.

Edit to add: Make sure to keep an eye on the reservoir because if it goes empty at any time while you're doing this, you'll be starting at square one again.
