First, ensure you have a little freeplay at the master cylinder clevis. If you do not, the cylinders bleed port will be covered and it will not pump fluid.
Next, remove the calip and place it as low as possible. Tap the brake line, wna slightly bepress the brake lever. You should see bubble exiting the tiny port in the resivoir. Do this till the bubbles stop. Alternatively, you can remove the master, put it at the lowest point and bleed the traditional way out the bled port on the caliper.
What ever method you use, try to make everything go up and down, no loops. Tapping 'un-sticks' air bubbles as does slightly working the master.
