it is simply not possible to replace the drum piston housings without bleeding all the air out of the system, no wonder you have no pedal pressure put a piece of pipe on the bleed nipple get a friend inside the car to press the pedal, open the bleed nipple and close it, you will see air bubbles come out continue this process both sides until no air comes out the pressure is back

You will have to bleed the entire system now as you got the proportioning valve out of center. make sure you have the rear brake shoes adjusted properly or you could cause the new wheel cylinders to leak, they should be adjusted to where you can hear and feel the shoes drag on the drums just slightly. Then bleed all of the air out of the system, Note you may have to bleed the system with the key on in order for the antilock to get the air out of the rabs valve.
