2nd Generation How to bleed a hydraulic clutch

how do you bleed a hydrolic cluch so that it works right ?
guy at the parts store said that because im putting in a new clutch i wont have very much clutch petal play and might have to turn the truck off and restart it to shift gears
the reason i am asking this question is because im replaceing the clutch slave cylinder and have to bleed the system

Loosen & put a small vacuum hose on the tip of the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder & the other end in a jar of fluid so you can see the bubbles come out when pushing the pedal in. The hose being in the fluid will keep air from going back in when releasing the pedal. Make sure resevoir doesn't go dry during this. Keep doing it until no more bubbles come out when depressing the pedal then tighten bleeder valve. The brake bleeding method doesn't work for clutch. There is also a pedal adjustment on the plunger between pedal & mstr cylinder under the dash to dial in pedal position. Keep in mind someone will have to be in truck working pedal while someone is under truck dealing with the bleeder valve.
