bleeding ABS module

I was wondering if anyone has any trick to bleeding the abs module on a 2000 ford f150 besides getting a scan tool...?

I blew a line a while ago, and the master cylinder ran dry.. I got it bled but the pedal has never been great since then.

Fast Forward to yesterday....

I replaced a rear line and the brake hoses... master cylinder empty again.

I have it bled to the point it was at before (stops but not great), but I guess air in trapped in the abs module. The manual says you need a abs scan tool to cycle the abs while bleeding the brakes, but I don't have one.

any tricks to doing that, or should I just take it to someone who has a scan tool?

I know this doesn't answer your question, but I was in a similar scenario. When I swapped the D44 into my ranger, my master ran dry. I thought I'd run into the same problem you have, so I just removed my ABS module completely. Brakes are rock solid.

swing it by a shop with a scanner is the only way i can think of. They are a pain sometimes even with a scanner... good luck.
