When you change the master cylinder it is best to gravity bleed first, then proceed to the pedal technique.
Gravity bleeding is when you just open the valve and let gravity pull the fluid down.
Keep in mind you must "prime" the master cylinder first before installing it, did you do that?
Priming the master cylinder is where you put it in a vise gently, you then take apaptors and screw into the outlets, then take tubes from the adaptors back into the resoirvor. You fill the resorvoir up with fluid and take a 3/8 extension for a socket and push the piston in and out slowly until there are no more air bubbles.
After this procedure you gravity bleed the brakes, then go on to the pedal technique.

The rule of thumb is to start as far away from the master cylinder as poss. so it means you start at the right rear, left rear, right front, then at last left front. There is a little a little weep bolt on each calliper it needs to be un lossened when break is fully applyed then tighten weep bolt back up pump the breaks while weep bolt is still tight then hold brake pedal down to floor lossen weep bolt till a full steam of fluid comes out tighten bolt back up, now move on to the next break calliper and repeat this same proccess till you finished. Hope this works better than r/r l/r r/f l/f lol!!!!

Try vacum bleeding with a vacum pump from any parts store. You definitely have air somewhere and vacum bleeding usually works and you can do it by yourself.
