no back brakes on 79-350

i just put new brake pads,shoes,wheel cylinders,all the springs in the rear drum,had the drums turned, and replaced the valve that the sensor on the dash is connected to. i have really good front brakes and no pressure in the back (so no brakes). the pedal goes down really far to. HELP!!!

You need to bleed the rear brakes.

I did, twice for about 15-20 minutes with someone checking the level in the master cylinder to make sure it was still full. there was just a dribble coming out on the second time and the master cylinder was still full.

Ok. You need to adjust your brake shoes out. Run the self adjuster out just until the shoes touch the drums. In other words, Adjust them out then spin the wheel, keep doing that till you can hear the shoes start rubbing the drums. Then you will want to bleed the rears again as you will have rear brake pressure.
