    Update:

    @madkaw: I pushed the fluid through the system backwards and got clean results at the master. So as far as I can tell, the lines are bled and A-OK.

    Quick Update:

    I'm not sure, but I might be on to something now.

    The Flex lines have all been replaced. The rears were done last year, and the fronts were done two years ago. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    I checked between the booster and master cylinder and I didn't see anything that looks like it's fallen out of place or is disconnected.

    Also, I removed the...

    Okay, so I just got the rear brakes hooked back up, and bled 'em. I moved a pretty sizable bubble out of the rear circuits, and nothing is leaking as far as I can see, so now everything is bleeding...

    Sure thing.

    I've bled the system three different ways.

    The first way, was the modern, "poor man's" solo method -- using a mityvac to suck fluid through until there was no air coming out of the...
