Angry Hydro brakes

I just installed a hydro boost and 4 wheel disk on a 79 cj7 with stock axles (30 front 20 rear) The hydro is off a 2001 chevy truck and has an 80 vette m/c on it, the rear calipers are off an S10. When I hit the brakes the pedal goes to the floor I can't build up any pressure not even if I pump them up. I have bleed the m/c, I have bleed all for brakes several times. I talked to Van and he said to remove the rear calipers, put a block of wood in them hold the bleeder at the 12 oclock position and bleed each rear brake that way. Which I did and still no pedal. I see no air coming out of any of the brakes just steady fluid. I'm new to hydro brakes so I'm not sure how the pedal should feel. Does hydro brakes feel similiar to power brakes? I'm wondering if I have air in the lines somewhere or a bad m/c? Any ideas?????????
