PROPER PROCEDURE FOR BRAKE BLEEDING, S10 2WD ABS

1994 Chevrolet S-10

1994 Chevy S-10 2 wheel drive.
4 wheel ABS
6Cyl. A/C TBI 260,000 Miles

What is the proper procedure to bleed the brakes on this truck?
I have heard that you bleed like normal, and I have heard that you must use a tool to hold in the perportioning valves on the ABS unit or they will not bleed properly.

I do NOT have access to pressure bleeding equipment, and have never had good luck using any vacuum method. I will use the two man method, pump it up, bleed. Pump it up, bleed.
Please help me, having problems with brake pedal to floor after a wheel cyl leaked. Replaced, but still brakes spongey, and pedal drops to floor during ABS operation, and loss of braking force.

Note: I made a donation with my first question regarding brakes, that has yet to be answered.
