Front brakes won't bleed

I have a 74 jeep with manual brakes, I put a new master cylinder and the back brakes were easy but the front ones are mostly air and very little fluid. What am I doing wrong ????

Being the bleeders are obviously working, You need to check and re-fill the master cylinder after bleeding each wheel. It sounds like you have let the master cyl. run dry after bleeding the rears. Either that or someone is taking their foot off the brake while you still have the bleeder open sucking air back in.
