Last time I replaced a master cylinder I got a kit with it. before you hook up the brake lines you screw in 2 zerts connect plastic tubing to them and run them into the fluid reseviors then pump the brakes until no bubbles come through the plastic lines

The preferred method is to use a pressure bleeder and bleed all 4 wheels at the same time. If a pressure bleeder is not available, use an assistant to pump the brake pedal several times and then hold pedal pressure. Starting with the farther most caliper from the master cylinder . Bleed each caliper until all air is expelled. make sure that assistant does not take his foot off pedal until bleeder valve is closed. Do each caliper from farthest away from master cylinder to closest. If master cylinder was not bench bled when installed, remove it and do that first. Then continue with the rest of the procedure.

a nick is made in an ear lobe or a fingertip is pricked to cause bleeding. As in the Ivy method, the test is timed from the start of bleeding until bleeding is completely stopped. The disadvantage to the Duke method is that the pressure on the blood veins in the stab area is not constant and the results achieved are less reliable. The advantage to the Duke method is that no scar remains after the test.

control the bleeding by the application of a pressure dressing.

No. Withdrawal is NOT a safe method of birth control, and the bleeding needs to be checked out by your doctor.

Direct pressure is the best method. If you can't control the bleeding this way, medical intervention is required.
