So you're saying that when someone pumps the pedal several times and holds pressure on the pedal and you open any bleeder screw nothing comes out? Is this ever since you changed the alternator?

Yes thats what im saying and yes after we got it off the blocks and tried to drive it is when we found out about the brakes
