Ensure you have pressure at the master cylinder both outlet joints.

Did you bench bleed the master cylinder prior to installation?

When bleeding the system, is fluids coming out of the rear brakes bleeder?

When there is excessive air in the system, it would take some effort to bleed the system. Try bleeding the system again, doing it slowly.

Alternatively the ABS pump is faulty and not allowing fluids to flow to rear brakes.
