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?
