    whatever sealed plastic container that fits.

    Sounds like you're thinking of a Mity-Vac.

    I bought one of those Mity-Vac units to bleed the front brake on my motorcycle and it worked mint. I had heard people having trouble bleeding this particular brake system, so I just skipped all the hassle and went right to the vacuum bleeder. It took longer to get the thing out of the package and hook it up to the bike than it did to actually bleed the brake lines which were dry. $26 dollars at AutoZone and worth every penny in my book.
