Power Booster Change On Wj .. Now I Have No Fluid

I HAVE SPENT THE LAST 2 DAYS TRYING TO BLEED MY BRAKES AFTER A POWER BOOSTER CHANGE. I HAD TO TAKE OFF MY MC TO GET MY BOOSTER OUT THUS I NEEDED TO BLEED MY BRAKES AFTERWARDS. ESPECIALLY SINCE THEY GO STRAIGHT TO THE FLOOR WITH NO RESISTANCE AT ALL!

I GOT A HANDY ONE MAN VACUUM PUMP TO DO THE JOB AND I NOTICED NOW I AM NOT PULLING ANY FUID AT ALL OUT OF MY BLEED SCREWS. IS MY MC TOAST NOW? I HAVE TRIED AN ON THE VEHICLE BENCH BLEED FOR MY MC AND THERES BARELY ANY FLUID MOVEMENT OUT OF THEM.

SOMEONE TOLD ME I MAY NEED TO ADJUST MY PUSHROD ON MY MC SINCE I HAVE A NEW BOOSTER AND I MAY NOT BE PUSHING FLUID INTO MY LINES. IVE NEVER HEARD OF SUCH A THING.

AT THIS POINT I WOULD TAKE IT TO A MECHANIC BUT I CANT DRIVE IT.

Wow .... like Josh said you need to "bench" bleed the MC first. What bleeding direction order are you using?
