I've done that, it just takes longer is all. Did you try some gravity bleeding? I've also had good luck with those self bleeding kits.

If you want to self bleed you can do it with a bottle secured above the brake with a little fluid in it. Then you take a clear hose that fits snugly on the bleeder valve. The other end you place in the bottle making sure the end is submerged in fluid and secure it so that it can't come out of the fluid. Simply crack the bleeder and pump away until there are no visible bubbles in the hose.

Favorite bleeding method to date,

Take holley red pump that is no longer used for fuel and has been cleaned. Attach to bleeder and battery. Place oldest son in engine compartment with gallon of brake fluid and let er rip. Repeat briefly on each wheel and keep in close communication with eldest son. When he runs out of brake fluid and tells you that "we are done" obviously you didn't explain the concept well enough.
