Hi, thanks for asking for me, SO your not able to bleed the master cylinders if i understand correctly. Did you bench bleed them first? Have you ever used the reverse bleeding tool from Phoenix corp? It bleeds the brakes by hooking to the caliper bleeder then pushing fluid back to the master. I am not at the shop so not able to grab a book on this. But i would recommend trying that.

The air keeps locking up the songs are not allowing the fluid in we can bypass it and bleed them but it won't work without the air doing what it supposed to do
