I've used an old refrigerator compressor as a vacuum
pump at each brake... Never tried the clutch.

I have the little bottle from the mityvac brake
bleeding kit and it appears to work well once I get
the compressor going.  Alas, I think the compressor
was on its last legs and won't start next time I try
to use it.

You're supposed to bleed starting at the rear
passenger and end at the rear passenger (yup, do it
twice), something about making sure you get all the
old stuff out.
