use 2 people.....

close the bleeder...
open the bleeder and put your finger over the end...as the other person pushes the clutch peddle down lift your finger slightly off the bleeder to let the air out...

when they hit bottom push your finger over the hole as they release the clutch and repeat... finger off as the clutch is being pushed in and finger on when released...

finger over the hole helps it from streaming fluid everywhere and a slight pressure on the bleeder with your finger forces the air out... once you get all fluid tighten the bleeder while the clutch is on the bottom and then release... pump up and go... takes me less than 2 minutes to bleed one

You don't bleed it like brakes. Don't open the bleeder, just pump the pedal. Sometimes it takes a while.

Just keep pumping, you can gravity bleed it by letting the fluid flow down till it comes out. Close the bleeder and just don't stop pumping. Over time the air will self bleed and the pedal will feel like normal.

Yes, as long as there isn't a leak.
