Hi chris.

The system has to be bled in this way OSR , NSR then NSF , OSF.

pump the brakes 5 times then hold pressure on the peddle, then the helper should loosen the bleed nipple until the peddle is on the floor, then close the nipple do this 3-4 times ,then go onto the next wheel in the route i gave you.

Let me know how you do .

Rgds Greg.
