Yes, the master cylinder doesn't have bleed nipple (on the 33s either),
you can perform the bleeding at the clutch slave cylinder.

Get a helper to sit in the drivers seat. Wind the window down. Get under the bonnet with a 7mm spanner, a length of clear tubing, and a jar or small container. Make sure the brake fluid reservior is at the max mark. Attach one end of the tube to the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder (hiding behind the dizzy) and put the other end in the jar. Then release the bleed nipple and yell at your helper to push the clutch pedal "DOWN". Once it's all the way down, close the nipple. Then yell "UP" and they should release the clutch pedal. Release nipple, yell "DOWN". Tighten nipple and "UP". Repeat over and over until clean fluid with no bubbles comes out. Then tighten the nipple and check that the clutch operation is normal. Make sure the level at the reservior never falls below min.

This is the old fashioned way, and it works. Once you've done it a dozen or so times it'll take 10 mins max.
