[Healeys] brakes

Somebody tell me what I am doing wrong.  Be nice.  I had a brake fluid leak at
a rear wheel, which I finally traced to the wheel cylinder itself.  While
fixing this, I also rebuilt the master cylinder.  Now I am trying to refill
the system with fluid.  It is probably completely empty by now, as the car has
been sitting for a long time.  I am using a vacuum pump to bleed, and can get
lots of air, but hardly any fluid at all.  The level in the m/c is not going
down, either.  There is no bleed port on the m/c, but I just loosened the
outlet fitting and pumped the pedal a few times; seemed to flow ok, so
tightened it all back up.  This is a BN2.  If I'm doing something stupid, that
is right in character.
