front drum brakes have no flow

I recently rebuilt the master cylinder in my 1955 ihc. Bench bled and installed it, new wheel cylinders on all for corners. Went to bleed today and the rear lines pressured up just fine, went to the fronts and all I get is air out of both sides, no fluid at all and the fluid level in the master does not move. Any ideas? What did I do wrong? Really wanted to drive this out of the shop today.

Homemade Motive type power bleeder for $14 - Page 2 - Corvette Forum

Here is a discussion of a home made brake bleeder which may help you out.. I have found it can try ones patience with the ole pump up and hold em routine when the lines are dry..

I was able to get fluid moving by disconnecting the front line at the master and putting my finger over the port, pumping the pedal to create vacuum and walk it started flowing.
