Buy one of them 10 dollar kits. Its basically a bottle, with a tube that connects to the bleeder which creates an air tight seal. As you pump the breaks you will see the fluid transfer to the bottle with most likely air bubles in it. Eventually as you pump the brakes it will become solid fluid ala no bubbles and the line will tighten up. Then tighten the bleeder, fill your resevoir and your allset. Dont forget to keep the resevior full as you bleed them, dont let it get empty or your starting from scratch.

remove the lid from themaster cyclinder.
crack open the right front bleeder screw.
deink a bevrage of your choise while keeping an eye on the fluid level on the master cyclinder and adding fluid when needed,

when your done with the bevrage, or in 5 minutes, whichever comes first, close the bleeder screw.

repeat for the other front bleeder line.

do the same for the rear.

its called gravity bleeding. and since you dont have any kind of a proportioning valve, metering valve, or an ABS module, there is no need to use the old school pump and bleed method.
