    I'm bleeding my brakes and I understand the brake fluid also powers the clutch. Would someone be kind enough to post a link to pics of the bleeder for the clutch. I'm not sure where to look. Thanks for any help.

    Look for "Clutch Master Cylinder", "Clutch Accumulator Removal, Installation" and/or "Clutch Release Cylinder" that's appropriate for your transmission. It will help you identify all the components and location for the hydraulic clutch.

    It uses "brake fluid" but I doubt very seriously from the same reservoir and lines as the brakes, for safety reasons if nothing else.

    It is the same reservoir as the brakes. Bleeding the clutch is similar to bleeding the brakes. You can probably do it by pumping/holding the clutch, but I use a vacuume bleeder so I can't help out with the manual approach.

    Sorry I can't provide a pic, but the bleeder looks just like a brake plug/fitting. It is located on a pressure booster connected to the transmission on the driver's side. You can miss it, the booster cylinder is ~6 inches long and obviously has a brake bleeder valve/fitting, likely with a protective rubber cap over it.

    Note: mine was pretty rusty, so I'd recommend spraying some WD-40 or PB Blaster just to make sure you don't break the fitting and have a real problem on your hands.

    Thanks guys. I have 2.7 stick 4X4, same as Larry, so if Stevie Wonder can find it I will. Mine look clean but I'll shoot um with juice. Better safe then f'd. Thanks again.
