Is there any benefit to giving the brake pedal a pump while pressure bleeding the brakes? Does putting the MC through a full stroke help chase out any air in there? Are there any risks of damage or introducing air(can't see how) into the system?

Just curious given it took 5 complete bleeds including cracking the hard lines at the MC twice before my brakes were finally up to snuff.

My system drained when I did my big brake upgrade and I believe I had an air bubble in my MC. This was the only way I was able to dislodge the bubble. Worked for me.

i always use the brake pedal when pressure bleeding.

suggest you not push the brake pedal to the floor on an old master cyl. there may be a touch of corrosion at the end of travel where it does not usually go. it could tear the seals on the piston.
