: Have been trying to get the cylinder loose. Have the clip off the engine side. Can't get to the clip on the clutch side with snap-ring pliers. Should I be able to turn the cylinder or slide it toward the clutch? I'm trying to bleed the line and was told to get the bleed on the top side. Can't get enought travel out of the fork to release the clutch. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

You should be able to slip it out toward the rear of the car. Try penetrating oil and/or big pump pliers to turn it back and forth while moving it outward.

I don't believe the bleed valve cares which way it points. Just place a tube on it and put the other end in a container with brake fluid just as you do when bleeding brakes.

When bleeding fails to yeild the desired results, replace the slave cylinder.

Good luck.
