    Hi everyone, About a week ago I changed my clutch as it was starting to slip on hill starts and didn’t want to risk it going around Christmas when money was already low. All went well with the clutch change and it seemed to bleed fine, used a vacuum bleeder and no visible air bubbles in pipe...
