Still sounds like air. Are you pumping until you get fluid or using a trap for the brakes to bleed into?

If this is not your post from a few months back , seems a common fault . Try bleeding master cyl . on car .

Re: 69 gal xl500 convertible

thanks for replies, i pumped til i got fluid only, and even tried a hose from bleeder screw to a bottle of fluid. i will try bleeding the m/c on the car again and if this doesn't
work i think i'll try with the old m/cyl (i just hate all those lines at proportioning valve)
thanks again for your input
