Bleeding brakes

I have tried and tried to bleed the brakes on my fd with a vaccum pump. The cars has a new master cylinder new calipers and all stainless lines. I can get the brakes to bleed tell I see no more air in the line to vaccum pump and they will be hard with the car off as soon as I start the car the pedal gose to the floor and you have to pump it a time or two to even get it to want to stop from idle the car has a abs delete from one of the members here that sell the kits can't think of his name any help would be great thanks

I have never used a vacuum pump or positive pressure at the reservoir to bleed brakes. I've always used the one-man brake bleed kit, which consists of a small bottle with a tube going to the caliper bleed. First I siphon out the fluid in the reservoir with a syringe and replace it with new/fresh DOT4. Then loosen bleed screw and pump away at the pedal until bottle is full. If it's been a while since last bleed/flush, I'll repeat, maybe a couple of times, to ensure all old fluid is flushed out.
