Brake Bleeding HELP!!!!

I am bleeding the brakes on my 37 Ford. I bought one of those one-man- brake bleeding systems. I have to bleed the master cylinder first. I took off the lines running to the master. I put scrap lines that I have on in place and put them into a gas jar to check for air bubbles. I pumped the brsake, and fluid is comming out great out of the rear line.. No bubbles. The front lines only drip. I tried crimping off the rear scrap line to force mor pressure to the front. Again. Only a drip.. Am I not doing something right?? thanks.. Al

Given that you are talking about a '37 and a tandem master cylinder I am going to guess that it is not the stock master. What is the master cylinder from?

Sorry.. I was able to fix it myself.. I had another master cylinder that came with the car. I just replaced the master, and it works fine now.. Thanks for your help though.. Al
