Axle swap from 1/2 to 3/4 brake problems

hello, im sure there is a post on this but it takes me to long to look through all the threads -.-.

But anyway to the point, i have a 1981 cj7 and i just did a axle swap with Dana 44 and a 14 bolt full floater in the rear, i have a soft pedal after re hooking all the lines up and i have bled all of the lines several times with a power bleeder and then manually. and still a soft pedal. mind you i have put the 71 Chevy booster and m/c and re lengthened the shaft so it would reach the brake peddle. if anyone needs more details/pics/ or anything let me know I've almost tried everything i can think of, and after doing some research i have found that if replacing the front brake lines it is harder then heck to get all the air out of them cause of low power to front calipers.

the proportioning valve reads as if it was working properly.
