Manually priming tubes in 3800

I am trying to resurrect an old Epson 3800.
I am quite sure that it has air in ALL channels, as it is printing blan, except for some black and a tiny bit of yellow.
Before I put in refillable cartridges, it made a bad nozzle check, but with ink in all channels.
So. I am soon running out of maintenance tank life, and I do not have a resetter. 
I feel like manually, slowly forcing cleaning liquid through the tubes..
Does anyone know what kind of rubber/tube/syringe will be able to fit where the cartridges normally attaches to the ink tubes?

Thanks
Ronald
