master cylinder won't beed out

I took the lines off the m/c and it won't bleed out on it's own, do I need to replace it ?

To bench bleed a MC, you need to use ports that have lines running up into the half-filled reservoir, then using a wooden dowel or similar, push in on the MC piston gently until no more bubbles come from the lines.

Another way that works on some if not all MC is to plug the MC ports completely, then do the same pumping procedure. The bubbles will come from the ports at the bottom of the reservoir.

It has been bench bled, my question is with the m/c reservoir full and brake lines removed shouldn't the m/c bleed out on it's own ?
