Soft clutch pedal.

So I just got a brand new tranny and clutch pressure plate slave cylinder put in along with getting my flywheel resurfaced. (92 2.5 yj btw)Now my clutch pedal is softer than ever. I had a professional mechanic who happens to be my uncle put it all in for me since I work night shift and really needed my dd back. I've read it is air in the hoses. How do I go about fixing that on a yj?

You need to bleed the system. The basics are to put a clear hose over the slave bleeder fitting, (I like to break the bleeder loose before putting the hose on it). Remove the master cap and fill it with fluid. Have a helper depress and hold the pedal to the floor, (say, "down"), loosen the bleeder; some fluid will enter the hose; watch for bubbles. Tighten the bleeder, (not all the way, just till snug), and say "Up", your helper will let off the pedal. Repeat this process until no more bubbles appear, or the pedal is firm, then fully tighten bleeder valve and fill/cap the master.



BIG NOTE HERE!!!!

Check the fluid level in the master EVERY 3 PUMPS! you will need to fill the master to the top after 3 pumps; if you go to 4, you may suck in air and be worse off than when you started!

Correct, just a couple of suggestions:

Sounds like something I can manage I guess I'll do that when I go to put my lift kit on. Another question might be kinda a newbie question but does it hurt to drive it with air in hose?
