Tim...again, you can't just bleed the whole system. Bleed master first,
separately, holding your thumb over the outlet when you release the piston.
Bleed hose attached to master after master is bled, same fashion with your
thumb making a 1-way valve. Then hook up slave. Bleed entire system. These
lockheed components are shit, and you have to do this sometimes.

If that ain't it, it's the Master. Bummer.
