I always reverse bleed mine. I use a length of flexible plastic tube suitable bore to fit over the bleed nipple and a funnel to fit inside the other end. Then I hang the funnel high from a beam in the garage, put some brake fluid in the funnel, remove the master cylinder cap, open the bleed nipple, and top up the funnel as the fluid flows steadily down the tube. Initially bubbles will emerge in the master cylinder, then the cylinder level will rise to the top, I close the nipple, job done.


This is a good way to do it, for a one man operation.  I've only had two manwels, and done cluthes in both,  first time was a bastids to bleed,  with two people, one continually keeping resovior topped up, we did it, 2nd time did it Terrys way took about 10 mins.
