40 ford. all new master and 4 calipers and lines. bench bled master, can't get fluid to calipers

Get a use a hand vacuum pump on each line at the caliper... use a long piece of tubing so as to NOT get fluid into your vacuum pump..have your friend pump the brakes while you pull vacuum ... this should get the fluid moving..(UNLESS there is a problem "upline") ... next - Do the pistons in ALL 4 CALIPERS WORK?? Do they actually move in and out..verify this!! .. I have seen them stick in new calipers and cause the headaches you are describing...DO NOT PUT PRESSURE ON THEM WITHOUT SOMETHING BETWEEN THE PADS.. YOU WILL BLOW THE PISTONS OUT OF THE CALIPERS!!..
- NEXT - ...try opening all 4 bleeders on the calipers and letting them sit... sometimes gravity works best...(WHY .. ??)... if this doesn't work, use a hand vacuum pump on each caliper.. -- ??

My 06softail pulls right when applying front brake

This is a common thing with single disc brakes. What ever side the brake caliper is on the bike will pull slightly to that side. If the caliper is on the left side it will pull slightly to the left if on the right side it will pull slightly to the right. You can check your tire - it may be cupped. The caliper might be grabbing a little to much.

The face on my dial calipers is turned 90 degrees to match up to 0. How do I adjust it to be correct and readabel?

There should be a small set screw you can loosen by hand and adjust the face of the dial to zero with the jaws closed....this is typical of most allows you to zero the dial on a given thickness of material and only read variations based on that thickness.
Take care.

I zero my caliper and go out an inch and then close and it is rea

The dial and needle are not aligned properly. I have several calipers (all vernier) which were past down to me from my father. Some are almost 75 years old and still measure +/- 1000th! I'd go out and get a good old fashioned caliper.

How get pads off calipers

The pins must be driven out spray liquid wrench on them an let stand for a few minutes these pins should be replaced with new ones if they are badly rusted, you don't need to disassemble the caliper just drive out the pins. It is a good idea to clamp the caliper in a bench vise to drive out the pins, use the appropriate size drift or center punch to achieve this.

Material pulling/shifting to one side

sounds like you're foot pressure is off, foot pressure and stitch length are the 2 main things that would cause "drifting" (they're also knobs that little hands could of moved) Also your little one quite possibly could of spun these knobs several times so keep that in mind while dialing your machine back to good health

Dial calipers .06 off from zero

With the caliper set to zero, you must turn the dial body to set it to zero. This should be done every time before the caliper is used.

Wher is the rear disc brake bleeder valve on a 1992 volvo240 sl. I cant seem to find it?

It's probably located on the rear (inside) face of the caliper, up near the top. It'll be at the top so that air in the caliper and line will drift upward to come out.
