Air in clutch hydraulic line

I have swapped my automatic transmission for a 5 speed 245. I have been having trouble eliminating air from the clutch lines. I have pressure bled from above several times. I can pump the pedal a few times, and see gas bubbles coming up from the line from the master and emptying into the fluid reservoir.

I tried to economize a bit with used master and slave cylinders with refurbish kits for gaskets. (Likely "false economy").

Ideas for gas source? Should I just get new master and slave?

Before you replace the cheepies try a gravity bleed first. on the clutch it trends to work better. I wouldn't have tried the cheepie approach because both components are kinda needed but your invested now.

Good luck
