I got mine there too.. but I'm not real happy with the results.  They
give you some silicon type sealer to put around the bleader screw
threads to stop it from sucking air in there... but it doesn't seem to
work at all.. I gave up and just put a hose over the bleed and under
the surface of some spare fluid in a jar... works better for me.
The best though is to have an assistant to pump the pedal.
