I'm guessing bates_k was looking at the severe angle the MC is at in the photo. If it were installed at that much of an angle and had any air in it, the air would be trapped far from the bleeders.

That's why I mentioned bench bleeding it before installation. Bench bleeding should always be done, but some guys will bench bleed the MC w/it on the car. In your case, this wouldn't be advisable, IMO. Instead, just carefully secure it in a padded vise or something along those lines (Workmate, perhaps?).
