Get an OEM cap, cut out the center 'bump' of the cap seal, and RTV in the remaining 'donut'. Your RTV MUST fill the tiny groove on the inside of the lid. This is the vent and will cause a major overflow. The fittings above are presto-loc style (push in, push to release) on both ends, and are a threaded body with a flange and nut. I ran washers on each side with o-rings under each washer. So from the lid, it goes o-ring, washer, nut/flange, fitting on each side. I have no leaks.
There are manual style bleeders out there, but they start around 60 bucks. As you can see, this is far less money, more compact, and is far easy to control the on/off and pressure.
If you have EITHER a compressor or ELC, this is the way to go. You could bleed all four corners at the same time if you chose to. I prefer to still do them in the 'normal' rotation of longest path to shortest path to the MC. RR, LR, RF, LF.
