I have had some brake bleading problems that would drive you nuts. Here is what I did, and it worked great. Get a one man blead kit from the parts house. This consists of a plastic bottle with a magnet and about 3 feet of clear hose.($6.95) Hook up the hose to the bleader valve on the caliper or wheel cylinder. Here is the key. Bring your plastic bottle up high so that it is higher than the caliper or wheel cylinder. Keep your master cylinder full and pump the pedal up and down several times. You don't have to close the bleader valve each time you let the pedal up like you would with a hose and container on the floor. Within about 10 to 15 pedal pumps you should have all the air out of that line. I usually start with the longest brake line and work toward the shortest. This method has never failed me.
