I used a pullback ram with my porta-power to draw the clutch fork back.

i ususaly just push it up against the fork at an angle to get the rod back in the slave cylinder then just snap it on the transmission as I go up.

I guess you could break the bleeder loose to make it easier but then you would have to bleed it again.
