Brake Master is going out, replace it soon or braking will almost be nonexistent, might try pricing it as a complete unit as the booster has wear on it also.

Did you bench bleed it first?

No, but am seeing clean fluid without air comes out the bleeding nipples. I do not know if air is in the ABS system.

If you didn't bench bleed the unit before putting it on you just shoved a bunch of air into your system, you just made your job a lot bigger, you may have to reverse flow the bleeding procedure on each wheel including the rabs valve unit for the anti lock.
