Seems like we covered this not too long back in an earlier thread .

How would I do it? Well, if my six year old daughter was in the mood to assist I'd do the two person pump and crack. If she wasn't then I'd break out my pressure bleeder. If I really had something else the required my attention, but allowed me time to check on progress, then I'd follow Newton's Law and let gravity do the work.

The thing is that any of the methods mentioned in the prior post would be a proper method to bleed your brakes. Just be sure that no matter which method you use, DO NOT let the resevoir run dry or you have accomplished nothing.
