I just did a front disc bra kik e swap and see there are 4 blenders on the calipers.
2 top and 2 bottom.
1st do I need to to uh ch te back brake calipers or can I just bleed the fronts?
2nd. Is it necessary to bleed all 4 blenders and I be li I've I have to start at the top.
So far I bled just the 1 top and 1 bottom outer blenders and still cant get a pedal.

It's good practice to bleed all four calipers whenever the system has been opened up.
You only need to bleed the top screw on each side of the caliper. Start with the right rear outer, then the right rear inner, then the left rear outer, then the left rear inner, then the right front outer, then the right front inner, then the left front outer, then the left front inner.

Sammy you may not end up doing it but I ended up buying a pressure bleeder from Summit to get my Strange brakes bleed right. Man that thing worked great.

Got a link to that pressure bleeder.
Why us it better than gravity bleeding?

Thanks even though I never touched the rear system?

Don't ask me but I tried everything even thinking it must be the master cylinder so I bought and installed a new one. I bought the motive kit. You can call and buy the kit for your set-up or buy the universal one so you are set up for all your cars.

Only use the bleed screws at the top. Calipers with screws on both sides and done like that so they can be mounted either direction. Rears should only need to be bled if they got air in them at the master, but if they've been together for a while, I'd bleed and flush them while I was there.

They are new in the box.
I pumped them up to try and get a pedal, from only the outer top first then bottom on the outside bleeders. Opened up the reservoir cap and bubbles were flying around in there.

Air rises to the top. Bleed from the both tops only. Don't pump it. You just aerate the fluid and make it impossible to bleed until you leave it set awhile.

Your best bet would be to call them and tell them what master cylinder you have.
