brake issues

I'm finally almost done with my axel swap and spring over. Its been a long time since I started it. My final issue is that I can't seem to be able to bleed the brakes. I have went thru three 32 once bottles of fluid. I bleed them until I get no more air out but still no pressure on the peddle. I've done it four times so far. If I pump the brakes I get the pressure and it holds but when I bleed them again I get air. Where could I be getting air if the pressure holds after pumping them???? I'm baffled. Please help

The most common answer you will find is that the calipers were installed on the incorrect side and has the bleeder pointing down. verify this first

DUHHHH. I kinda feel stupid now. LOL I found that the rear brake adjusters are frozen. Hopefully a rebuild kit on them will do the trick.
