Priming master cylinder?

you can also bench bleed the master if you hold master in vise, add fluid 
put fingers over hole and push piston in with a screwdriver. as the master 
builds fluid it will lift your finger off of the hole and allow the fluid to 
escape, when you stop pushing on the piston your finger will close off the 
hole again. this will eliminate most of the air in the master which is 
usually the hardest part of bleeding brakes.
