Understood and thank you again @B y r o n.

On the 78’ 55 the farthest wheel away from the brake master is the driver side rear. Then passenger side rear then driver side front then driver side front. As it appears to me following the brake lines. Can someone confirm that I’m looking at the lines correctly?
Confirmed.

That’s the gold standard @B y r o n . I’ve read that bad boy 20 times trying to figure out where I’m going wrong. I’ve bled 40’s, 60’s, 45’s before with ZERO issue. Full brake jobs on all of those as well.

Something is going on here that is definitely outside of the norm.

My next go round is gonna be loosen and tighten every connection, re-bleed master, re bleed each wheel then cross fingers.

One bit of knowledge I have not mentioned is that I added SOR’s braided brake lines. Anyone think that might be the issue? I’ve had the truck on my buddies lift for a week, zero leaks. This one is a head scratcher. Has anyone ever had a leak/crack in a line that was letting air in but not dripping?
