LATECH You have to get the prop valve re centered so the Brake warning light is out to bleed the system or you will only have one set of brakes working, and you wont be able to bleed the blocked off system.

I have good luck gravity bleeding systems almost 100 % of the time.
Sounds like a master cylinder problem If I were to guess.

Brakes

May have to bench bleed the master.

Also, if you somehow (not that I have ever done this ) got one or more of the wheel cly installed wrong, you may have the situation where the bleeder is not at the very TOP of the cyl - so it can now bleed fluid while there is still air in the cyl. Easy to reverse them L to right on some systems (results in the cyl being upside down, but can still be installed) , impossible to do on others, but just a thot.

Did you get the right bore in your MC. and your wheel Cylinders, and did they give you a MC for 4 wheel drums.

I would be willing to be you still have air in the lines.

matts37chev double check the shoe adj on all 4 corners
and just a note, when bleeding you should start at the break that is farthest away
but you may have already known that

also, make shure there are no leaks on all that new stuff
