SPICER 7 SPEED SLAVE BLEEDING

2005 Ford F-600

Transmission problem
2005 Ford F-600 V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 37000 miles

I've got an 05 Ford F-650 with a Cummins 5.9L and a Spicer 7-speed manual transmission. The hydraulic line right behind the dash came disconnected. I re-attached it and put the pin back in. I figured I'd bleed the line so I looked for a bleeder valve at the slave cylinder and found none. I disconnected the line at the slave (I fear this was a mistake). The line drained but the resivoir level did not change. I now believe that the slave cylander and the line need to be bled as well as the master. There are no bleed valves on the cylinder. I figure I should take the slave off the frame (so that it's vertical) and fill it. THen fill the line, but this will just get me back to where I was. The dump bed is full of about 12,000 pounds of concrete, so towing it somewhere will be expensive. Any help would be appreciated!

These come pre bled and sealed. You will have to buy the slave and master and line in one kit.

So it's not a serviceable part? I can't bleed it? Why do they make it so that it can be disassembled? Thanks!
