When I had master issues on my old 720 and was by myself with pedalfloor, I had to rob a vacuum hose from an engine part and bleed at the dampener. Neither that 720 nor this hardbody could I bleed solo without a vacuum or pressure bleeder. I don't think you could just pump it up with the pedal or the slave.

Put on your parts and get a buddy or vacuum/pressure bleeder.

Probably stuck outside its normal stroke. Push harder Disconnect the hard line coming out of it and see if it is still stuck. It isn't uncommon when stroking them like this to bleed for a worn master to stick.

It can be done but it's a pain in the ass. It definitely helps if the dampener has already been bypassed. I use a gatorade bottle with a piece of tubing through the cap. It does the job but you need to use the smallest hose possible and force it onto the bleeder valve at the slave, otherwise air gets in. One day I'd like to make a cheap pressure bleeder out of a round-up sprayer.
