No problem, glad to help. Thats possible but I still think you'd see leakage if seals were going. Your original problem points to a master rebuild which you did. I think now its just a matter of getting brake. Air can be trapped in a lot of places... BTW I am not a wrench, I do a lot of mechanical work but am not a professional. Just so ya know.

I bled mine a couple months ago, and they were a bit stubborn (went through two bottles of fluid). U started with a vacuum pump, then switched to the old fashion way of a wrench and empty collection bottle. After I got just about all the air out, I squeezed the lever and zip tied it down all night. The Next day I bled a couple times and was good to go. Sounds like you have trapped air or a stuck piston. Squirt come brake cleaner on your pistons too. Good luck
If pulling the brake fluid from the master cylinder down to the caliper rather than pumping the brake lever to push the fluid down you'll want to secure the lever at about half pull to open the port inside the master cylinder reservoir.

Day 2 of trying to bleed the brakes and still nothing. Took apart the master cylinder again and made sure no damage from the repair kit. Put it all back together an attempted to bleed the brakes again still no pressure in the handle. I'm at a loss at this point. Going to check te brake line next to make sure there is no damage there for the 2nd time.
