Two things come to mind. Air in the system and or bad rubber hoses to the calipers. Was the car sitting for a long time? C3 vettes have a 4 piston design at each caliper. Try bleeding the brake system starting at the right rear. There are two bleed ports per caliper. Bleed the port farthest from the hose inlet first then the port closest to the hose. Righr rear, LR, RF and LF. I have heard of the rubber supply hoses collasping due to age. Also the new silicon brake fuilds dont mix well with stock DOT 3 fluid. Good luck
