Have inherited a problem. Got an 03 with a new clutch and a new slave cylinder truck still moves with the clutch depressed. I want to make sure it was bled completely before I install the master cylinder any tips on doing this and preferably the easy way if there is one. The above is how I got it so im having to pick up where someone else left off so advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have not seen anything about bleeding the slave... I have found this, tho... It is on a 04 manual.
CLUTCH COVER AND DISC RUNOUT
Check the clutch disc before installation. Axial
(face) runout of a new disc should not exceed 0.50
mm (0.020 in.). Measure runout about 6 mm (1/4 in.)
from the outer edge of the disc facing. Obtain
another disc if runout is excessive.
Check condition of the clutch before installation. A
warped cover or diaphragm spring will cause grab
and incomplete release or engagement. Be careful
when handling the cover and disc. Impact can distort
the cover, diaphragm spring, release fingers and the
hub of the clutch disc.
Use an alignment tool when positioning the disc on
the flywheel. The tool prevents accidental misalignment
which could result in cover distortion and disc
A frequent cause of clutch cover distortion (and
consequent misalignment) is improper bolt tightening.
Clutch will not disengage properly. 1. Low hydraulic linkage fluid level. 1. Add hydraulic linkage fluid.
2. Clutch cover loose. 2. Follow proper bolt tightening
3. Clutch disc bent or distorted. 3. Replace clutch disc.
4. Clutch cover diaphragm spring
bent or warped.
4. Replace clutch cover.
5. Clutch disc installed backwards. 5. Remove and install clutch disc
6. Release fork bent or fork pivot
loose or damaged.
6. Replace fork or pivot as
7. Clutch master or slave cylinder
7. Replace hydraulic linkage
It's not much help, but it's what I have.
