if I use a vacuum pump and bleed them that way will it get the air out of the master cylinder(if there is) too?

ok now dont exactly quote me on this one, but i believe that it is "better" to just go the manual route with bleeding the brakes, ive heard that the pump ( at least i think this is what your talking about, a pressure bleeder) maby not, anyway, can introduce more air into into your system.
Lifting and pushing the pedal down SLOWLY also keeps air bubbles from forming.
hope that helps.
also i dont know if there is air in the MC but you should tap your calipers to dislodge any pesky bubbles.

Hope that helps.

I fully explained to you how to bleed your master cylinder. It's really super duper easy... just do it :-p

Do you need the extra hardlines and fittings or something? Cuz if you can't find any I could just send you mine.

I know but I needed all this stuff done by friday night/saturday morning, thus trying to get everything with one shot. I bleed the the old fashion way, still have air somewhere but now I have to go to work (working 6 days a week now thus having no time) I'll run the car regardless I got the pedal semi-soild now I just want it little higher/stiffer
