87 240DL, Half of brake system will not bleed, hlp plz


I have a problem with my 240 wagon brakes. I have replaced the front
calipers and pads, the master cylinder (twice), and put in another
used pressure regulator (the splitter box which divides the brake
system into two parts). The first half of the system bleeds with the
left back wheel, and the top-most bleed screws on the front calipers.
It had bled fine, with no air bubbles. The second half of the system
goes to the right back wheel and the two bottom bleeder screws on each
of the front calipers. For the life of me, I cant get pressure to
these lines. When I bleed any of the bleed screws on this system, no
fluid comes out. Air/fluid can be sucked in ( I used a clear hose
into a jar of brake fluid) but no fluid comes out. I checked and
there is fluid coming into splitter box on this half of the system.
I took off and cleaned two of the three other lines in that half of
the system. Tried to bleed it again, but nothing. There are no
visable leaks in any of the line. I am at my wits end. The brakes
arent ABS. The rear pads are fine. Any leads would be more than
Thank you,
