!970 Corvette brake problems

I am the original owner of a 454 1970 vette with manual brakes. After replacing the rotors and new cermanic pads and the pain Emer. brakes hard ware,,,I can't build up pressure. I even replaced the master cyl. Blead the system about 15 times and still no pedal. I think it is the back brakes.
Can air get into a rear caliper and not leak? The pedal only goes to the stop where the front pads work,,,so it must be the backs? What am I doing wrong here......ran a garage for years but never ran into this.
also..LF caliper bleeder won't stop bleeding so I temporarily welded the drain hole until I fix the back problem
