Notorious for bubbles in the lines. Try a 'pressure bleed'. A gravity bleed just does not work. Pressurized tank on the master cylinder to push the fluid through. Not just a 'burp' but a full out flush. I do not know if common or commercially available. We made ours with a garden sprayer, hose, and cylinder cap. Same era Jeep trans have the same issue.

Ya that sounds right, I had a 88 with same motor and tranny and it did the same thing couple of times. I had to change slave cyl and bled system...never did it again
