You'll need a jam jar and a piece of clear plastic tube that fits tightly over the slave cylinder bleed nipple...put it on then stick the tube in the jar, watch it doesn't fall over
Get someone to push the pedal to the floor...or get a piece of timber and jamb it so it holds the pedal down
Open the s/c bleed nipple and watch the air and fluid come through the clear tube
Repeat till there is no more air, just fluid...close nipple then try clutch

I agree - Nissan made a number of different sizes - from 12mm upto 30mm - depends on the front cover, fork pivot and release bearing.
Sounds like it's got the wrong (i.e. short) throw out bearing cradle fitted...

Bleeding clutch hydraulics can be one of life's great mysteries. Ive poured litres of fluid through them and still cant get a good pedal sometimes. From experience Ive found the best way is to reverse bleed, by using a syringe and pushing fluid from the slave up to the master, it can be messy but sometimes is the only way. If you have flexible lines then other options can be to remove the slave and bleed it at a height above the MC.
good luck, I feel your pain!

As the Zedman says - if your master is not pushing enough fluid for the slave. Maybe bigger master or smaller slave. Lay under her while someone pushes your pedal. See how much travel you get. Maybe longer actuator rod?
Does it get any better if you pump it harder and longer
OK, I'm finished now. How 'bout you?
