Yes there is another way to do it but go slow and do it wright
Bleed by using the screw nut on the pipes you just fitted by.
Pump pedal 3times fast and hold down get someone to clamp all 2 hoses (1F/1brake pipe over rear axle) with small G clamps and then undo pipe nut on the one without clamp when pedal on floor lock up and do again ,when done 2 times put clamp from other side to the 1 you just done and do the same again to that side, when Front done take clamp from rear pipe and put on front and to the same bleeding to the rear BUT
pump up 3 times and open both nuts togeather and tighten both togeather and do the rear 4 times not 2, ANDTop up M/Cylinder every time , you might find jacking up rear of car is a lot better to remove air

You use the bleeder on the rear drums to bleed those lines but you cannot do it to front brakes until you replace the bleeders up there.

Replaced brakelines know pedal goes to floor

You either have a leak in the the system or your master cylinder is bad and allowing the pedal to push through the cylinder without bulding pressure. Check all the wheels for signs of a leak, if none and the brake fluid resivoir is full then the master cylinder on the back of the firewall is bad. These can be rebuilt very cheaply and you can do this yourself with parts from the parts store.

When you opened the bleeder screws to the rear brakes, did you completely remove the screws ? Might also want to perform a complete visual inspection of the brake lines from the rear to the front and master cylinder.
How are you performing the bleeding process ?

How to bleed brakes on a 1992 Chevy Caprice. Specifically the rear drums

start from the fartherest place from brake master cylinder, that will be the rear passenger side wheel. it takes two people to bleed brakes. you will find the bleeder valve screws at the top of inside of the rear drums on both rear wheels, have someone pump the brakes up, will take at least 4 pumps of brake pedal, at 4th pump keep pressure on pedal while you break loose the bleeder valve on the rear wheel, fluid will come out and brake pedal will go down to floor, keep pressure on brake pedal until you've tightened the bleeder screw back [note] you'll only have to back the bleeder valve out about a half turn until you see the fluid come out. after you've done the rear brakes add brake fluid to the master cylinder as it will be low. then go to the front passeger side and you will find the bleeder screw on the brake caliper. repeat the same proceedure as back. remember that pressure on the pedal is a must until you've tightened those bleeder valve screws back or else it will **** air into the brake system. suggest that you bleed all 4 wheels not just the back. after you've bled the front make sure you add more brake fluid back to the master cylinder, it will be low again. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

How do i bleed the brake system

First, before you do the bleeding, did you "open" any of the lines? Was there a caliper replaced?

If no line was opened, you do not need to bleed the brakes.

If so, please let me know and I will post the bleed procedures for you.

Why are you thinking about bleeding the brakes? Spongy brake pedal?
