New Brakes

I finnally got all my brake parts together. Now its time to bleed the system. I have never done this before. Can anyone give me some pointers on doing this? Ita a basic system, drum rears and disc up front. No frills. thanks for any advice.

1st thing you need to do is to bench bleed the master cylinder. You can see how thats done on you tube. Then you start bleeding the wheels.You start at the right rear, next left rear, then right front, then left front.
If you don't start by bench bleeding the MC, you will get no where with the rest of the lines.
