Brand new brakes.
Changed lines.
Perfect pressure before changing out old brakes.

By combination do you mean which wheel when? begin with the wheel farthest from M/C and go to next closest and so on...may have to go around 3...4...5 times until no air comes out. Impossible to do alone, just make sure M/C never gets low and draws in more air, add fluid every time you do a wheel or more often if need be. And the M/C first? Don't know what you mean by 'done first' if it's in good working order nothing need be done to it

Yeah I know I read do furthest away. I started with the left rear, right rear , front right and finally left right. Since the MC is on the drivers side. I think what messed everything up is that air snuck in the MC. Probably gotta start over again.
