I never use a vacuum pump either but I have had the same issue with bleeding the PCV. I never took it to bits but sometimes it needed a good 3/4 turn to get fluid through, other times 1/3 of a turn suffices.

Of course if you had any air in the secondary master it can take a lot of pumping to get it started. And the + side is you have had more practice and now will be better at doing it too!

re: techniques. I was originally using vacuum and the rear pedal. The bike came with Speedbleeders on all the fittings except pcv so I after I couldn't get the pcv to bleed, I used the pedal on all the remainders. When I went back to the pcv I just used the pedal. It was quite a relief.
