Clutch line

Hello I recent replace the rubber clutch line in my 93 3000gt-VR4 with a stainless steel braided line. As I put bleed the line I notice that the stuff coming out was sticky. Do anyone know of a product that could be used to flush out or clean out the clutch to put clean fluid in and also has anybody tried to use silicon brake fluid in the clutch line??? Would appreciate any advice. Thank you....

Just flush it with fresh brake fluid.
If you can do it with a hand vacuum pump thats even better than pumping the pedal.
You can use silicon brake fluid but you will not get any benefit from it because the clutch hydraulic system does not experience the amount of heat brakes do.

Thank you 1991 STT. I'll try that and the hand held vacuum works ok too.
