If you are using something like a Mity-vac to bleed the wheel cylinders, 
here is a little bit of advice. I recently did my 74 MGB and was having 
difficulty with the front calipers and had to resort to the old way-using an 
assistant in the car. What I had forgotten to do was put just a little 
grease around the bleed nipples, to seal air coming in around the threads. 
Old trick, poor memory. I keep learning things over and over!
