So, my guess is the master cylinder, can someone please agree with me or give me better guidance...(sorry, I'm so pathetic, but i'm slowly losing my confidence with this) UGH!
If you had someone putting pressure on the brake peddle while you did this and there was brake fluid in the master cylinder. I would say you have a problem with the master cylinder. Might try bleeding the master cylinder first to see if it will pressurize. If it wont it probably needs a rebuild or replacement.
