Lockheed BAI Master Cylinder nightmare

i have a Lockheed BAI N177 master cylinder fitted on a 69 Ford Ranchero (Aussie Falcon XT UTE) that is giving hassles.

new master cylinder kit was installed along with new reservoir cups.
cylinder has been resleeved before and is in good nick.

problem:
when you dry pump it, there is pressure on front and back wheel exit holes.
when you try and bench bleed it, you only get fluids coming out the exit hole for back brakes.

i have stripped it again, cleaned it out again, used compressor to blast holes clean, but still no luck.

only the back brakes bleed.

can anybody give me advice please? my patience has run out. Angry this is the last thing holding up the build.
the easiest would be to just fit discs in front and convert the whole system, but my money is done.

heeeeeeellllllppppppppp!!!!!
