did you make sure that when you were bleeding the brakes that you did not run out of fluid in the DOT-3 container? cause if it did run out, it would have sent air bubbles right back into those brake lines.

Is the brake master cylinder in good condition, and how old is the power booster? If you did all that to the calipers and what not, bled them out the correct way and no fluid leaks, its possible the rubber seal in the power booster is shot and not allowing the brakes to build up pressure.

I assume you meant not running out of DOT 3 in the master cylinder while bleeding.
