if someone could tell me what i am doing wrong id very much appreciate it. do i need to get a new master cylinder? i hope not
So... even with the brake line removed from your master cylinder, you cant get any fluid out at all, even using my power-bleeding method?

If so, you've made some kinda mistake rebuilding/assembling, or you've got a port in your m/c that's still plugged up with sludge/debris.

You can fix this, dont give up dude
Even if you decide to re-sell this kart, it'll be worth more with functioning brakes. (plus you'll learn from the experience)
