Default bleeding rear brakes on '96 k2500

my dad blew a rear brake line on his truck, we're having a hard time bleeding the brakes, constantly getting a soft pedal even after bleeding both rear lines.

the old man is saying somethign about a pin that needs to be held up by the abs module, can't figure out how to get the pin to stay in. any suggestions?

No keep the bleeder closed. Mashing the pedal will reset the proportional valve. Then it can be bleed quickly.
