Question about 1985 Buick Regal
First -- make sure that you have brake fluid in the reservoir,, and on the back of the brake drums you will see where the brake lines enter the drum itself,, near there you will see a little ' zerk ' fitting -- to this fitting you should place a clear hose over this fitting and run it into a catch bottle,, now with the help of a buddy ( or wife ) -- have them sit in the car and get ready,, now you need to take a small wrench and turn ( counter clockwise ) the zerk fitting ( just a little ) --- while it is open have your helper step on the brake pedal AND HOLD DOWN to the floor,, at this point you need to close the zerk fitting --- have them release the pedal,, open the zerk again and have them press and hold the pedal again,, close the zerk and release the pedal,, do this 3 to 4 times until NO air bubbles can be seen through the clear hose --- also check and refill the reservoir to make sure you don't run it dry.
repeat this process on the other side. after both brakes have been done, check the brake pedal,, when you push down it should get hard ( stiffer ) ( pump a few times ) --- if it goes to the floor then you still have air in the system and need to repeat the bleeding process.
