ok so im changing out my from brake pads, first time of course. im folloeing everything in the hanesmanual and in the "sportbiketrackgear" youtube video. took everything apart ok, cleaned it all. went to swap out the regular bleeders for speed bleeders and now im screwed somehow. i pump the front brake and nothing, i went to the other side to see if i could change it out with a spped bleeder and re create a vacume, and it was already dry, and from the looks of it it hasnt had beakefluid touch it for a while,could they have messed up the line before? how do i get the fluid back into my lines? the master is full im pumping fast, holding forever, trying everything and i just cant get movment help please!

I'd start by replacing the original bleeders. Then, either backfill from the caliper with a syringe (push the fluid up to the mc), or use a mitey vac to pull the fluid down from the mc. IIRC, the system has to be full of fluid when you install a speedbleeder.
