Anyway, the swap looked easy, but it gave me a little trouble. The new MC was cheap - $19 at Autozone.
Bleeding the air outa the lines had me frustrated, but I finally got it right. Anyway, here are some pics to help guide you through some of the process.
1. The new MC MUST have the same bore and stroke as your old unit.
2. Your clutch line fittings are probably corroded so I suggest using a vice grip to break them loose on the first try and then using a line wrench to tighten them back up when putting things back together.
3. Brake fluid will eat paint, so don't get it on your nice paint. Wipe spills off right away.
4. Now would be a good time to bleed all the old DOT3 outa the clutch lines and replace it with fresh.
5. I am not a mechanic, so right or wrong, what you read here is just how I did it.

Also of NOTE!!- the clutch slave cyl. bleeder screw is on the -"BOTTOM" of the cyl-air goes to top & gets trapped!! I had to remove the slave & put the bleeder screw to the top & bleed-to get air out!! Nexxt time ill put a pressurised brake fluid hookup @ the slave & bleed all out @ the clutch line to master!! =datsun??
