Bench Bleeding Master Cylinder

Looking for some help on bench bleeding a new master cylinder. On a very old truck it came with a bleeding kit but this one doesnt. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fill it with fluid, stroke the piston so fluid totally fills the bore right to the outlet. Make sure there is no bubbles of air left in there anywhere. Done.

Careful you don't get sprayed with brake fluid from the hole.

Ended up shoving some hose in the ports and pointing them into the cylinder. From there, I got it bleed and dropped it in.
