Q: New clutch no brakes on 1996 Honda Accord

I have a 96 accord lx 2.2 non vtech and without abs i just put in a new clutch and now my brakes don't work. The brakes worked fine before the clutch was put in. I replaced the master cylinder and repeatedly bled the lines thinking that may be the case. it drives fine but when i try to hit the brakes it goes straight to the floor the first time, gets a little stiffer the second time, by the third the car will stop at slower speeds. what could cause this? is there a check valve or distribution box?

It sounds as if there is still air somewhere in the hydraulic system. Make sure you bleed the master cylinder itself, then the brake lines all the way to each wheel.
that what i was thinking to so when i replaced it i bench bled it and then bled all lines multiple timesi cant find any leakedge but i literally have 8 hours of non stop bleeding the lines and they still dont work
