No Brake peddal

(1990 Chevrolet 1500 Pickup)
in Escondido, CA on March 25, 2010
I replaced the front pads and the rear shoes and both wheel cylenders. I gravity bled them then preasure bled the system and still have no peddal. The master pumps fluid when the cover is off so what am I doing wrong.

if you let the system run dry you need to bench bleed the master because it's probably air bound. have someone pump the pedal while you crack the lines right off the master. then rebleed the rest of the lines starting from the furthest bleeder from the master and work your way forward. also make sure you adjusted your brake shoes up!
