Default problems with brake system!!!!

Hey guys, i need some help!!! so i am nearing the end of this god forsaken 2.5 year project on my mustang and hit a brick wall with the brake system. I am not getting any pedal while bleeding the system and there are no leaks either.
I did bench bleed the master cylinder before i installed it,
Here is what the system consists of
strange master cylinder part B3359TA, 1.125" bore

Hurst line lock (shouldnt affect the system while power is not being applied to solinoid while bleeding the brakes)
Click the image to open in full size.

wilwood proportioning valve (recomended to me by guys at strange for this combination)
Click the image to open in full size.

Front brakes are 2 piston, slightly larger then stock sloted rotor brakes, been on car for about 6 years now, was with old combination
Click the image to open in full size.

Then the rears were changed over to strange disk brakes with 4 piston calipers
Click the image to open in full size.

now the ONLY thing i can figure out is that i was recomended the wrong strange master cylender when ordering the system..... The one i got is for "optimum for vehicles with 4 piston calipers front and rear" while the other master cylinder is for "optimum for vehicles with 4 piston calipers on the rear and 2 piston or single piston calipers on the front".... but besides that i have no idea.
My system IS 4 pistons in the rear and 2 in the front, and the master cylinder i have is for 4 piston on both front and rear.
any thoughts opinions or ideas are welcome as this is the only thing preventing me from driving my car for the first time!!!

stop trying to bleed the system, you are going to burn out the master.

open a rear bleeder (or both) and take the cover off the master. Poke a small hole in the seal of the brake fluid bottle and turn it upside down in the master reservoir.

let the rear bleeders sit open until fluid trickles out. Then close them.

Open the front bleeders, leave them open until fluid trickles out. close them.

Now start bleeding from the RR.

if the lines have fluid, you must have a large air pocket up the system... I would strongly suggest a power bleeder, or just leaving one of the rear bleeders open.

try to remember, civilian side, I repair cars for a living.

the system not being completely empty is in fact what is ****ing you the hardest right now. Yes, I think you should let it "gravity bleed" for a while.
