ok very tough system to bleed.

I suggest a pressure bleeder. it is one where you put a piece on the cap of the master cylinder. then air pressure is applied and you open the bleeders one by one until good flow with no air.

did you replace the master cylinder??

I Replace the 2 New Master cyl and I am useing a A Vacum bleeder with compressor

ok, I would rent a pressure bleeder. works much better. it will force the air through the lines. the vacuum bleeder does not have enough pull for all the air. been there done that.

I am have problem with this . I bench bleed the Master cyl. and when I hook the vacum to the caplier I showing air still trap

I have read this.

As I stated before, vacuum is not strong enough to pull all the air. thats why you need a pressure bleeder not a vacuum bleeder.
