Update- Thanks for all the help JF!!!!

FINALLY got it. I went to AZ and had actually bought a new master thinking that's got to be the problem, if not, it's the slave and there's a whole 'nother problem to address. When I got home and decided to try bleeding it just *three* more times before I switched it out. 1st try, same weak fluid stream. 2nd try was more solid stream. 3rd time I broke the bleeder open and WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH!!!!!!!!! It shot a stream out the back of the Jeep!!!! Clutch is better than it's ever been. I had been getting a little "chunk" every now and then shifting from 2nd to 3rd and it's gone, shift's smooth as butta baby.

Moral: If your master goes dry on a 20yr old Jeep, and you've pumped the clutch 350 times with the bleeder open (aka wrong way), you must Bleed the clutch til you think it shouldn't be bleed anymore, then Bleed it until you're convinced it's totally shot, then bleed it some more until you're so p!ssed you can't see straight, then bleed it some more, then pace around dumbfounded a while, drink a beer and cuss a bunch, then bleed it 3 more times and you're done!

Please Note: My actual location is a lead box in Sassafras Cove.

You're getting the idea!

Best dog darn investment for bleeding I ever made. Clutches and brakes with yer eyes closed.

Fluid transfers and such are a breeze also.

`Course you don`t get to drink as many beers or cuss like a red bellied sap sucker but the increase in life expectancy due to reduced blood pressure makes it worthwhile. YMMV though.
