One the rearend is a square 4 way metering block, you need to loosen the lines before adding fluid to help remove the air while the fluid gravity bleeds to the rear wheel cylinders...once fluid reaches the rear finish by bleeding the brakes

On most vehicles the brake hose bolt has a hole in the thread area of the bolt. make sure that the hole is aligned with the hole on the brake hose otherwise you will not get fluid to your calipers. Also do not forget to install the copper washer!
