you dont need to have the abs pump running just do a normal bleed starting with the right rear then left rear then right front then left front. there is air in the brake lines from you removing the master thats why you have no brakes. the abs pump defaults to full open when the key is turned off. remember to have the person pumping the brake pedel do so SLOWLY fard or fast bubbles create foam or small bubble pockets making bleeding times longer.
