There are only 2 tricks to do it. First: properly doing the bench bleeding of the replacement mater cylinder, directions and bleeder fittings and hoses should be in the package with the replacement master cylinder, Second is not getting any air into the rest of the brake system. While your this far you might consider bleeding all of the brakes until fresh fluid flows from each brake bleeder. Unless you have a brake bleeder system this will take 2 people.
