Either buy or rent a brake bleeder pump (the easy way) or fill the reservoir open the bleeder and walk away for a few hours and let gravity take over.

I used Speed Bleeders this time around. I am very impressed with them.

I had trouble bleeding my back brakes a while ago.
I ended up using a big syringe, and did a reverse bleed.
Used some clear tubing, and pumped the fluid into the brake bleeder, pushing the bubble into
the master (cover off). Worked like a charm.
