confused KA Laser

Hi,
My son has a laser and was having problems with the brakes ie leaking front caliper. So he has rebuilt the calipers new seals the lot. Bled brakes and pedal goes down a long way and brakes are not that good. Another master cylinder was fitted from another vehicle whos brakes were working fine. Master cyl bench bled and fitted and system bled. Still problem exists.

Does anyone have any suggestions or is there a little trick with bleeding the Laser's brakes

Cheers

Clive
