OK Guys, I'll comment on all your comments...

Discs are at all four corners
Prop valve is open all the way to prevent any restrictions. I read that post too...
All bleeder valves are at the top of all calipers.

I'm pretty sure the rear circuit is air free. Good flow out of both sides.
I think the air bubble is in the front circuit since I had to replace a line and got lots of air from the passenger side caliper before fluid. Did the driver side and got some air before fluid. Can't be 100% sure but I'll do all corners until I stop the pedal from hitting the floor.

I love trial and error and error and error. Oh well I don't have anything better to do tomorrow.

Gravity bleed: unmounting the calipers or using the jack are options to consider but alot of work. I'll keep those as a last resort. The car is up on a drive on lift.

I like the vacuum bleed suggestion. Found one at Harbor Freight for $23. I don't have a hudson sprayer but thanx for that suggestion.

Will keep you advised.
