Default Brakes

I have a 1987 Honda Wagovan 4wd . The brakes were mushy when I git the car
and noticed the fluid was empty in the master cylinder. I installed a new
master cylinder and have bled the brakes with a pressure bleeder 5 times.
They are a bit better than at first but still mushy. I have no leachy lines
and no siezed calipers. I have no clue what else to try. Please help!!!

did you bleed out all the air from the master cylinder? on the bench, when
you have all the air out, tap it with a hammer while pushing the piston in
and out to remove any extra air that could be trapped.
Also check the power booster for leaks

pressure bleeders are not always reliable, particularly on master
cylinders; they tend to air lock. the only guaranteed sure method is
two people - one operating the pedal, one operating the bleed valve.
and don't be afraid to pump through /plenty/ of fluid.
