Slave won't bleed

I have a 96 ranger 2.3l 2wd. I swapped out the flywheel, clutch, read main seal, master and slave cylinder. When I started the truck at first it wouldn't go into gear and the clutch was really soft so I bled it out a decent amount. Now the clutch is soft about half way and then stiff as it should be the rest of the way to the floor. But I noticed that once I keep bleeding it only a drop of fluid is coming out or the bleeder and the clutch is staying the same but it will go in gear now . Do I need to keep bleeding it? My bleeding steps are pump the clutch approximately 7/10 times then hold the clutch to the floor open the bleeder close it then release the clutch and repeat the steps. Am I doing something wrong?

Did you bench bleed the master?

Proper bleeding of the master/slave consists of bench bleeding the master and gravity bleeding the slave. One should never touch the pedal when bleeding this system.
