Unable to Get Brakes to work

I have tried replacing my master cylinder, proportioning valve, brake lines for front only, Brake Wheel Cylinder, and the drum shoes. I am able to get all the lines to bleed, but no pressure is being built. I have searched many times for a leak, but I do not see any. Any ideas what could cause the brakes to not build pressure?

I have Drum Brakes front and back.

You have no brake booster? If you dont, you will really have to nail the brake pedal when you want to stop. I'm talking almost standing on the pedal to make it stop quickly.

Figured it out. Helps when you adjust the back brakes
