We just got done doing the rebuild of the master cylinder. and Im bleeding my clutch right now... and the clutch peddle does not come off the floor when you push it down. Is this normal? Also is the car suposed to be on when you bleed the clutch?

yup that is what it does
just keep lifting it up and pusshing it down and it will eventually start getting stiff, if you are bleading it corectly

how stiff does it get when bleeding? It seems like as long as the bleeder screw is open, it is going to stick to the floor. Maybe I am not pumping it enough.

as long as the bleeder valve is open...it won't get stiff. Bleed it until there are no air bubbles....tighten the valve...and voila, a nice stiff clutch pedal.

With the valve wide open, it will never get stiff. Once you get it to where fluid starts to squirt out. Hand tighten it shut, then just barely crack it open. That will build pressure, and help bleed the rest of it.
