You need a helper to press on the brake pedal when you are ready to bleed the brake. Start from the farthest wheel to the driver seat. Tell your helper to step on the brake steady. Then you loosen the bleeder screw on the brake cylinder. The pedal will be depressed all the way. Then tighten the bleeder screw. Tell your helper to release the brake pedal. Repeat the process three or four times untill you see no more bubles coming out. Next go to the next wheel. The sequence is 1. Rear passenger side wheel, 2. Rear driver side wheel, 3. Front passenger side, 4. Front driver side. With this method you don't need any fancy tools just a wrent to fit on the bleeder screw.
Make sure to refill your brake fluid after the process.
