I use one of three methods depending on my mood. Gravity bleed, old fashion 2-man method or my home made pressure bleeder.

Gravity bleed works great when you have other things to do at the same time. Just don't get distracted and forget to check the flow rate and resevoir level .

Pressure bleeder when I'm home alone and in a hurry.

And, I last used the 2-man method while ressurrecting the 560. The then 5 year old wanted to help, so she got the priviledge of pressing the brake and holding until I told her to let up. A few more complete brake jobs, and she'll be a champion brake bleeder like Larry Bible's daughter .
