Brake issues...Day 4

So I have been asking questions pertaining to my drum drum set up on my CJ 5, I have replaced the lines, bleed the MC, attempted to vacuum bleed, gravity bleed, etc. The MC is bleed and when I attach the brake lines and pump the brakes nothing comes out nor does it fill the lines. I am scratching my head as to what else could cause this problem. If anyone has any advise please I am open for anything thing. Oh and I have checked the push rod and the depth of the bore.

Is your proportioning valve working/plugged up somehow? Does the pedal feel firm or just go to the floor? The master could be bad, wouldn't be the first time a new one was defective.

I wanna say yes, I took a look at it. Yea it might be the MC, but when I bleed it with clear tubes going from the outlet back to the reservoir, it appears to be moving fluid just fine...this is my quandary!

Try plugging the mc outlets and see if you get a hard pedal. Might push enough fluid when looped back into the mc, but then is bypassing when there is any good resistance.

Are your brakes adjusted properly?
If not, do so.....
