Help in Bleeding a hydraulic clutch

Replaced the clutch, new concentric slave cylinder, new master cylinder. Have been trying to bleed this thing for two days. Hooked a vacuum pump up to the bleed valve onthe slave and getting a solid stream with no bubbles in it. resevoir goes down as expected. no visible leaks anywhere . N oair bubbles indicating an air leak.
The clutch pedal is still soft as can be. no movement of the slave against the pressure plate at all.

It isnt supposed to be this hard. Am i doing something stupid?? HElp please.

Thanks

Smytty

did you bleed the master cylinder before you bolted it into the firewall?

If you replaced the master cylinder, double check your cpp. Clutch Pedal Position Sensor. It is spring loaded. And If the spring isnt seating right It wont press very hard on the master cylinder. Just a thought.
