I should also say.there should be a solid steam. Like I said it will be a process of elimination. I think some things are eliminated.

If you bleed and you have fluid at all 4 wheels and some pressure. I'm inclined to go back to the master cylinder. or proportioning valve

Jack you car to level master cylinder. if bleeding doesn't work let sit over night. bubble will come to top. or try force bleeding.

Ok lets think like a bubble. I want to go up and find the high spots. lines master cylinder and proportioning valve. brake the line on all connection proportioning valve master cylinder. don't pump let bleed a little. see if there is air trapped.
