Fighting with the clutch…

I wanted to test the clutch out.  So, I bolted the motor onto the transmission with the flywheel and clutch installed. I rolled the setup under the car and put it generally in position:

 

I connected up the clutch line, and proceeded to bleed the system.   I got it bled with a vacuum bleeder, but the clutch petal was acting quite odd.  It started in the up position, but with just slight pressure, it jumped all the way to the floor with significant force.  I had to use my hand to pull it off the floor.  After looking at some Porsche forums, it sounds like this is a common symptom of a bad slave cylinder.   Since the slave cylinder was fine before, and I haven’t really done anything to it, my guess is I have something assembled incorrectly.  Time to take it all apart…
