Not sure what all the drama is about bleeding brakes. I use a short piece of rubber hose with one end blocked off and a slit cut into it. (same one for 30 years)
Just slacken of the bleed nipple push on the pipe and pump the brake peddle. The slit in the rubber acts as a non-return valve stopping air being drawn back into the system. to catch the old fluid just place an old washing up bowl under the bleed pipe.
Works just as well on modern ABS fitted cars.

In my time messing with old cars the biggest cause of a bad paddle is worn/oversized brake drums
