[DML] Shade Tree Mechanic (MT Bleeder)

Hey all you helpful guys to the Shade Tree Mech..  I have another layman 
question for yall.  What's the easiest way to bleed the hydraulic cluctch 
system?  I found the fluid connection located wayyyyyy up inside the car, on 
top of the trans. case, under the distributor cap.  Can only get to it with 
the finger tips of one hand.  What size is the nut.  Is this the correct 
place to bleed the clutch?

Thanks yall.
