Brake rubber flex line could be collapsed,,or kinked,,,i suggest loosening of the line at the master cylinder distribution block (this will give you the ability of loosening off one line at a time,,and have some one push the brake pedal down,,if you see fluid at this point then you know it has to be the line or the caliper.
if you get no pressure from the distribution block then its the master cylinders fault

The caliper should have been bled on a bench prior to installation. You sound like you hung it on the car dry and empty and are now trying to fill it right there at the wheel. This is possible but takes MUCHO longer as you found out. You can do what you're doing, or take the caliper back off and pour as much fluid in it as you can get, with the bleeder open. What you have now is a huge air bubble that fills the cavity inside the caliper. You're almost there, keep going!!! Good luck.

It sounds like you have a bad mastercylinder cause when you panic brake it doesn't have time to bleed through the valve in the cylinder but under normal braking your foot is on pedal longer in turn giving the fluid time to bypass the valve in the mastercylinder in turn the pedal going to the floor.
