slave cylinger

take a plastic bottle such a an empty brake fluid bottle. drill a hole in the lid
for a length of tubing that will fit over the slave cylinder bleed screw.add fluid to the bottle, put the tubing onto the bleed screw and open the screw and bleed the cylinder in reverse.--the tubing has to fit tight in the hole in the lid
you have to squeeze the bottle to force to fluid up the cylinder ,, this will push out the air. i have done it lots time and it works. a softer bottle like a round bottle used for ketchup with a spout works nice. be sure the tubing goes almost to the bottom of the bottle.
