how to bleed a clutch

So, Im coming along with my zf5 swap... everything is together but the clutch goes to floor and stays there. I have read here that it is way easier to just get a pre-blead unit from ford rather than trying to bleed it. I have also heard that the pre-blead ones are 99+ only? Any truth to that? And also, I had a hell of a time sliding the slave cylinder into position and getting the rod to "tuck" behind the fork at the same time... any tricks to that or just push the rod in and slide at the same time? thanks in advance

Should be a pretty simple task. Find the bleed screw, fill the master cylinder with brake fluid. Use a vacum pump to pull the fluid through. Make sure the pedal is all the way up. Doing it this way will bleed the entire slave. Make sure you don't run out of brake fluid while bleeding.
