I replaced the two front calipers with rebuilt calipers. The system was drained. I bleed the brakes starting in the rear and going to the front. I've run into an issue with the driver's side front caliper.

I have fluid making it to the caliper, as the bottom has fluid coming out with no air bubbles. But when I went to the top bleeder, I only got air. It never filled up with fluid. I removed the bleeder screw to make sure it wasn't clogged. We peddled the car continuously, and only just air. This went on for a while.(IMG:style_emoticons/default/headbang.gif)

There are no fluid leaks in the system.
Any thoughts would be welcome.
