Bleeding the clutch can be a real pain in the ass. I had a friend do it for me. Someone else might be able to help u out tho, maybe redline...

Are u sure that u replaced the clutch master and not the brake master?:rofl: J/K:rofl:

Ok, This is what the 96 Acura Service Manual says:

12-6: Bleed the clutch hydraulic system:

-Attach a hose to the bleeder screw, and suspend the hose in a container of brake fluid.

-Make sure there is an adequate supply of fluid at the clutch master cylinder, then slowly pump the clutch pedal until no more bubbles appear ath the bleeder hose.

-Refill the clutch master cylinder with fluid when done.

-Use only DOT 3 or 4 brake fluid. We recomend Genuine Honda Super Duty DOT 3.

-Confirm clutch operation, and check for leaking fluid.

If I remember correctly the bleeder screw is on the slave cylinder located at the front of the transaxle, it should be in plain view.

I hope that u are using an oem master, if not, I'd consider buying one. I can get it for u at 10% over cost.

***make sure that you adjust the pedal properly after reinstalling the master. I think there are 2 or 3 adjustments that may need to be made, all of which are made under your dash where your pedal connects to the master. Usualy you don't need to touch it but if you put in an aftermarket part proly needs to be adjusted...
