it sounde to me like the metering valve is clogged or something on that order,you want to unhook the lines for the front first to bleed then the rear lines off the valve you should be able to get flow and then a vacuum bleeder will remove the rest of the air.hope that is helpful.

I'm not sure why you are asking this -- the master cylinder needs to be bench-bled before installation. Without knowing what the problem is specifically, I would say perhaps you got a defective part. You don't describe totally what the problem is -- you can't bleed it at all? Or there is air coming through no matter how you try to bleed it?
