1996 Sonoma 2wd I Cant Bleed The Rear Brakes!

Somethings wrong i Broke a rear brake line, ok now i fixed the line ect goto bleed the rear brakes nothing no fluid flow at all.. Some valve somewhere is blocked...

Any one know how to to un lock the valve or recenter it the one that is stuck ? I only can bleed the front brakes not the rears..

Must be a solution Thanks..

my truck doesnt not have a valve under the master cylinder...has a big honkin box on the front fender that all the brake lines run into and out of...

Any ideas?

Try using a vacuum bleeder that pulls the fluid through the system......
