86 CR500 problem w/ front brakes need help.

I am over from the jeep forum. Have a question about a 1986 CR500. At first the front brake was draging real bad (took two people to push it). Took the front tire off (the axel is fine). Opened the pads up put tire back on rolled fine. Hit the brakes they worked but started to drag again. Flushed out all the brake fluid and bled brakes. Now they will not pump back up. Any ideas would be very helpful.

Thank in advance.

Clean the brake cyclinder, make sure the piston is really clean.........
