Question 67/68 200D NO CLUTCH PEDDLE OR BRAKES

I have a 200D 67/68 that's been sitting for QUITE a while. I have no brake peddle, with filled fluid reservoir. The same for hydrolic clutch. Previously, pumping the brake peddle and pumping the clutch peddle would bring them back to operational, but not this try. Now, pumping the brake the peddle doesn't do a thing, and stepping on clutch peddle, peddle goes to floor - no return. Any suggestions on where to start? Clutch, now is my main concern.

You likely have air in both systems. For the brakes, you need to go through the normal brake bleeding process. The method I use is to find an assistant, have them pump the brakes, then hold the pedal down while I loosen the brake bleeder at the wheel cylinder/caliper. This is done for all four wheels until only fluid comes out of the bleeder. Make sure the reservoir does not run dry. Another method is to use a Mighty Vac at the bleeder.

For the clutch, try loosening the bleeder on the slave cylinder with the peddle up and wait for fluid to run out. This should bleed the air out. If this doesn't work, you may need to pump fluid backwards through the slave bleeder.
