It has never taken us long or a bother to bleed the Bert. Uasually just a few pumps. I also uasually let brakes and clutch gravity bleed a few minutes with the caps off,while I do other things.

If you have a high spot in your line,it could cause an air trap.

I use a go-kart type master cyl. that is low volume per pump. I remove the trans bleeder, allow gravity to do what it can, the put my finger over the bleeder for a pump or 2, put the plug back in. And it works fine. I assume you put brake fluid in the clutch line, and trans fluid in the trans. A buddy of mine couldnt bleed his Bert cuz he thought the clutch used trans fluid too.

Do those type of trans have a line coming out of the case?? And would they use a clutch fork to try and fool people?
