    True, you can bench bleed on the car. Just make sure you retain the TOB with a clamp or something or you'll blow the piston out of the cylinder sleeve.

    Where specifically is your leak coming from?

    I cant locate the leak per say, but it comes from inside the bell housing. Is there a way that when I have the transmission unstabbed that I can actuate the slave cylinder??

    Maybe the slave is over extending. Is the friction plate in backwards or some spacer incorrect? If the slave is leaking it may be pushing too far out.
    Also I heard about a Honda where the clutch pedal bracket was cracked. It would never make pressure because the master was not traveling enough.
    Would one of those cameras on a stick fit in the hole on the side so you could perk in there while someone press the pedal?

    Does the ls7 master have a different connector than the ls2?

    No, the connector is the same LS2/LS6/LS7/LS3

    How much was the shop bill? Too bad we all missed the obvious possibility that the master was the culprit. I guess that's why shops usually replace them as a pair.

    On this topic, is the master something that should be done with a clutch swap? The LS7 swap is in my distant future, but didn't plan on replacing the master cylinder as well... Do these fail often or at any particular mileage? Are there any telltale signs of wear?

    The shop charged me nothing and I do the work myself especially since I did an engine swap from 3.6 to 6.0

    Nice. Good shop to help you out.
    I have heard of masters failing after being bled, moved or transplanted to another vehicle. I think a weak seal can go when the piston suddenly travels in air not fluid during bleeding. Plus all the silt from the bottom of the reservoir get pushed through.
