clutch bleeding procedure?

Hello all! It's been a long time since I was here last. I recently had to replace the master cylinder for my clutch and was wondering what the proper procedure for bleeding the lines is. Here is what I did...

I had a friend pump the clutch about 5 times and hold it on the last down-stroke. I then opened the bleeder on the passenger side terminal block. Repeat until no air came out.

Should I have also bled it at the slave cylinder? I still have to pump the clutch pedal once or twice if the truck sits for a while in order to get it to go into gear. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!

I normally would, but then again, I've never swapped a master cylinder. Yeah, I'd bleed the slave if no one else answers this question... just to be on the safe side.

I would bleeds it first at the slave cylinder, then again at the bleeder valve near the firewall- bleeding this one finally got the air out of my lines. would alos consider replacing the slave cylinder, also, if it is a few years old, sice you will have the system broken down to replace the master, anyway. I had to replace the first slave cylinder after 9 years on my '88, but replaced it again last year when I replaced the original master. Replacing both also helps get rid of any discolored fluid (it usally gets pretty black after a few years of use).
