I just put in a new after market disc brake system in my 67 camaro along with a line lock/roll stop. I also have new rear brakes on my ford 9 inch. Everything is new, but the splitter. I bench bled the master cylinder and I have tried bleeding the brakes several times, but there are no brakes unless you pump them 6-8 times. Then they work. What might be the problem? Do I still have air in the system? If so, Any suggestions?

Yep....air still there, and lot's of it. When you pump fluid, it compresses the air and finally they work. Try a vacuum bleeding system.

Check to make sure you installed the calipers on the correct side.The bleeder valve should be above the line to the caliper.
