    You can use clutch and brake pedal pressure with the power bleeder attached.

    I use this method to speed the brake bleeding process. I pressure the system to about 10 psi, crack the nipple and get in the car and pump the brake (not to the floor).

    That method did not work on my E36 clutch. Due to the orientation of the nipple it allowed air into the slave that I had to remove using the method I described above.

    Doesn't hurt to give it a try. Whatever you do, try not to push the BRAKE pedal outside its normal range of motion. You could damage it if you take it to the floor when bleeding your brakes.
