Triumph TR6 - Bleeding brakes and clutch

I just bought this last week at Harbor Freight. The picture is just of half of it, but to me it was the important part. Just a plastic bottle with a valve on it, and four adaptors. One of which fits perfectly on the clutch master cylinder. You can put almost a full bottle of brake fluid in it and it keeps your master cylinder full while you bleed your clutch. The other half is your typical gizmo that you attach to an air compressor and your slave cylinder. I had bled before the manual way and every two pumps by foot, the master cylinder would be sucking air.This eliminates the need for a helper and getting up from under the car to check the master cylinder. Harbor Freight has 4-5 pneumatic bleeders, but only one with the reservoir bottle. $36 complete, not including my neighbors air compressor that he gave me.
