Bench bleeding 101

So I've got this 'new' Corvette style master cylinder for my cj7 and I haven't had any luck with it yet. Just took it back off to bench bleed it again... Well I've got the lines bent over into it, with the ends submerged, I keep pumping it, and no bubbles outta the end of the lines, but when I let off, I get one big bubble outta the hole in bottom of the front section. I'm thinkin I got a bad one... Is this normal? Never had to do it on any of the ones I've changed before. And I've pumped it over a hundred times...

a lot of people do complain that they buy a new mc and its not working right off the bat. and need to bring it back. I read one time of a guy who
brought his mc back 2 times and the 3rd one worked. so couldnt hurt to try a new one.

Does anybody know what year the Corvette master cylinders that all the power brake conversions use came from?
