Doesn't that and all this defeat the purpose of using a pressure bleeder?!?! I have one; never worked worth a crap with the clamp-on lids/worked ok with screw-on lids. The seals dried out, now it sits in the cabinet. Don't miss it at all.
Vacuum hand pump to prime, bong bottle hung above the brake piston, send it.

I'm not impressed with the pressure bleeder either

I used one of these when I bled the brakes on both of my cars. A friend of mine has a repair shop and he let me borrow it. It was awesome. Pulled the fluid right through the lines. No mess.
As far as no fluid coming out of the front, what about the proportioning valve closing off the front ? You said you only checked one side.

if the valve closes the brake warning light would come on and I would not have any braking up front. Motive repsonded to my question to them and they suggested to keep the brake pedal half way down when pressure bleeding. When I bled the back they bled with the pressure but the flow was slow and sure wasn't 10 lbs pushing it.
