I'm not sure what you meant exactly by the last sentence above, but. I found the best way to bleed a clutch slave cylinder is to simply gravity bleed it. Fill the clutch master cylinder, open the slave clinder bleed valve and let the fluid run out. leave the top off the master cylinder so you don't create a vacuum lock and don't let the master cylinder go empty. After you feel all the air is out close the slave bleed valve, top up the master cylinder, replace the top and you should be done. Hope this works for you.
