Question about 1992 Lincoln Mark VII
I have front brakes, but no fluid to the rear brakes
Proper way to Bleed the brakes is as follows.
Jack up the car.remove the rear tires first. loosen the bleeder and attach a rubber tube and put that in a milk jug. You start with the drivers side rear. Get in the car and just hold the brake peddle 1/2 way down. When you see clear fluid (did I mention you will need several bottles of fluid) If you have a friend helping you, have them keep the resovour full. when the fluid is clear , do the other side the same way. The front calipers you need to pump like regular calipers.

HAHA, funny. when you bleed the brakes on a lincoln mark, you have to have the key turned to the on position for the rear brake bleed or nothing will come out no matter what you do. you can leave the bleeders open for a decade and nothing will come out. Turn the key to on, but do NOT start the car, then proceed with the bleeding as you would the front.

My first guess at that would be you have a air bubble it the master cylinder. have you left something out like a repair you just performed or something ?
sound like air anyhow or a bad master cylinder.
what to try is this fill up the brake reservoir and open both rear bleeders
walk away for a few hours or put a pan to catch fluid and go to bed
this should start a gravity bleed on the brakes brake, fluid level should be lower in the morning if not empty lol.
have someone pump the brakes hold the pedal down on the last pump and while they hold the pedal down crack the bleeder, ( he must keep pedal on the floor till you tighten the bleeder back up
then he can let up on the pedal and y'all do this again and again till while he hold the pedal down and you open the bleeder, you have no momre air coming out. good luck
