bench bleeding can be done in the car.. its probably easier anyway. you have to put the resovoir on and fill it up, then run some rubber hose from the output back to the resovoir. just pump it until you stop seeing air coming out. you might also want to put a towel under that, unless you don't like paint on your car very much.

I have bench bled a master cylinder all of 2x in my life. It is pretty easy to do on the bench. Here is a pretty good online guide: http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq....html

I bought my master cylinder remanned at Napa.
