Default Brake & Clutch fluid

The Haynes manual for the Rover 75 & MG ZT states 'The brake fluid reservoir also supplies fluid to the clutch master cylinder'.
Can the clutch be bled by keeping the brake master cylinder topped up?
Thanks.

If only it was true, would make bleeding the clutch much easier.
Unfortunately the clutch master cylinder is located behind/above the actual clutch pedal and you need to be a contortionist to get to it.

unfortunately it is not true.
i think this has something to do with copyright.they have to have some "porki pies", otherwise they run the risk of copyright laws on reproduction.
