brake pressure problems

I just converted my 71 2002 with larger brakes and master cylinder. I got 320 drums and the all bmw tii spindles and 5 series caliper. I put on a tii booster and mc. I bled the brakes for quite a while now and can't get any pressure. I have oem stuff here and I don't see any leaks. Is there something I missed. I just hooked the vaccuum hose from the booster to the manifold. Do I need a 1 way air valve?

I heard that master cylinders need to be prime. A

couple days ago I replaced a master clutch

cylinder and couldn't get it going. I remember

buying but never using this pressure pump to

bleed the brakes (BMP). Use it for the first time in

conjunction with a plastic hose that has check

valve at the end (Kragens), it worked!

Hope this helps

Michael
