147 clutch pedel wont stiffen

I bought an 05 147 jtd which needed a clutch which i've changed but ive run into trouble as the clutch pedel wont stiffen when Im bleeding the system, Ive put a new Slave cylinder on and i have a clear piece of pipe from the bleed nipple into a container full of brake fluid, I pump the clutch pedel and the reservoir empties and there's no air bubbles in the bleed pipe but the pedel wont get hard even though ive used a litre of Fluid when topping up.
Ive checked the Master cylinder and that's dry inside the footwell and the other side in the bulkhead the R clip is in tact on the clutch pedel and is working the master cylinder, All the pipework is dry and there's no leaks so why cant i get the pedel stiff ?

Is the slave cylinder piston not moving then?

Get someone (or set up a camera recording) watching the slave cylinder whilst you push the pedal a few times inside... See what (if any) movement you get in the engine bay.

Mate many thanks for the reply but ive got it going and it now works, I changed the flexi pipe leading the the slave and it's working, The joint was very corroded so change it as i had nothing else to change and the pedel and clutch are working ...
Again Many thanks for taking the time to reply
