All over 'cept the bleeding...

Just replace 3 hard brake lines, 4 brake hoses and one parking brake cable
(that was a bitch and a half job) on my 91 200q20. That, along with freeing
up the Parking brake cams, installing new front pads and swapping out my
horrificly bad UFO's for a used set in much, much better condition.
The brake system was pretty much drained due to a blown brake line 2 weeks
ago, and I am finally ready to fill 'er up with brake fluid and bleed the
system. A couple of questions before I proceed:
1: Do I need to bleed the Master Cylinder, or can I simply fill up and
start bleeding the lines? Meaning, with the system drained down, should I
approach this as if I were installing a new M/C and "bench bleed" before
2: When do I bleed the slave cylinder? Before, or after, bleeding the
I've got a home-made pressure bleeder, so the operation shouldn't be that
involved, still, I would rather do it once and do it correctly the first
Damn, I may even get to drive the car this weekend.
