Sounds like air in the system. You can also “reverse bleed” the system. Take a clean oil can, the kind that has a thumb lever that you pump. Fill it with brake fluid, attach a clear rubber hose to the end of the discharge tube. Pump all of the air out of the clear tube and attach it to the bleeder valve. Just open the bleeder valve a small amount and pump the oil can. Have someone check the brake fluid reservoir and make sure it doesn’t over flow. The person watching the reservoir will see air bubbles coming up in the fluid. When the bubbles stop, your ready for the next cylinder.
Will be a bit messy ‘cause there will be some leakage from the bleeder valve. But, it works if all else fails. Works great on hydraulic clutches too.
