If your tool fits the threads you can use it but, MCP has a reservoir so you don’t need a brake bleeding tool.

Without the tool: fill reservoir, press pedal, open bleed screw until pedal bottoms, close bleed screw, release pedal, repeat until all air is removed.

Remember air bubbles go up so, make the bleed screw the highest point in the system.

Make darn sure you know what brake fluid your system takes. Most MCP take DOT5 but I don’t know what they’ve got on the Margay.

Also put a new roll pin and cotter that holds the lever in the master cylinder if you want to live.
