I had not opened up the bleed nipple enough to allow the air to go down to
the slave and purge. What I did was to fill the reservoir to the top and
used my compressors rubber tip to pressurize the tiny hole at the top - 20
psi. When I opened up the bleed nipple a lot more, it finally belched out
the trapped air and I had my clutch back. It did take a bunch of fluid to
finally bleed out.

Thanks everyone,
