I believe all LT1 have them, those cars are 92-96. I think LT4s have them as well but not positive. Unsure of the LT5 and I thought L98s had a belt driven air pump.

It pulls air/fluid from the bleed screw. The threads on the bleed screw will leak air in but it doesn't matter, it's still pulling vacuum on the brake system. A compressor of only a few gallons may...

OP, do you have an air compressor with a decent size tank? If so, consider the below pictured tool. It has worked great for me for clutch and brake bleeding and is about 1/3 of the price of the item...
