I cant find any vacuum solutions local where i live.

I just picked up the one man brake bleeder @ Auto is a cup with clear tubing that attaches to the bleed valve. You still need someone to pump the clutch pedal but it is less messy and you can see when the bubbles stop coming out because of the clear tube.

One almost stupid question I have, does the engine have to be running to properly bleed the clutch line? I figured it doesn't but then again, I'm no automotive genius.
