Have you tried gravity bleeding (open bleeder screws until the leak) before pressure bleeding?

You are gonna think I'm nuts, but an old school mechanic told me when I replaced all my brake lines a while back, to fill the M/C with fluid, Open all the bleeders(on jack stands and tires/wheels removed) and let it sit over night, close all the bleeders the next day and bleed as usual!! Good luck with your car!!

You are not nuts, that is gravity bleeding, but it doesn't take all night. If you wait all night, the master cylinder will be empty.

refilling the M/C first gets you started fresh the next morning, you'll be done in 10 minutes instead of trying all day to get the brakes bled!!
