    Since you removed all the fluid from the master cylinder, that should be bled before bleeding the system. Disconnect the lines from the MC and run some flex lines back into the MC, pump slowly until the air is removed from the MC. Then hook up the lines and bleed the system.

    Finally got some functioning calipers now been siting here with the RR brake bleeder open letting it do it's thing for 30-40 minutes and nothing no fluid coming out of bleeder no change in level in the reservoir. Even if it was only pumping air out the amount of fluid in the reservoir should change. I cracked the front for a split second to see if fluid came out and it seemed to have done fine. With that said...where should I start now?

    Also how does the reservoir work on these on the 92 there is a small slit between the two chambers that allows the fluid to move between the two not seeing that here and it was full on the large side and half full on the small side.

    I had to bleed mine last week. I used one of the craftsman manual vacuum bleeders. Pretty much just opened the MC, hooked up the vacuum and cracked the bleed screw to remove a couple ounces. Then closed bleed screw, topped off MC and repeated until clean fluid came out. I am pretty sure the government had never changed the fluid.
