I've run into another situation I'm not familiar with - if you remove the master cylinder is it necessary to bench bleed it again to reinstall it??

Then yes, you will have to bench bleed. Is it a new/reman unit, or an old original part?

Bench bleeding an old one cause ruin the internal seals when the piston is retracted past ita normal operating travel and the corrosion rips the seals. So be careful
