Fixed!!! Thanks to all who posted. Edder hit the nail on the head, calipers were on the wrong side which put the bleeder below the bango bolt. After many engine rebuilds under my belt, I'm downgrading my status to novice mechanic.
Glad your back on the road, but I must admit it wasn't actually my nephew it was me that had this same problem. It took me 5 hours and way to many cocktails to figure it out. Actually maybe the beer helped. Glad I could help.
