Gurus...could this be a case of return line in master cyl needing cleaning?
There is a small plate at bottom of master, remove fluid, remove 2 screws and poke hole with single wire from a wire brush, the end of a guitar string etc, tiny thin wire
All the bleeding from the bottom wont matter if an air bubble is trapped at the banjo bolt
Have to pump lever halfway a few times, then burp the banjo with it as high point- as noted in above post
DO cover banjo and surrounds with rags, or say goodbye to some paint!
Apply a small amount of bearing grease or brake caliper grease to the threads of bleeder nipple, seals out any possible air suck-back
Sometimes its the simple things. You verified free motion of calipers and pads?
