Thanks for the responses. However, the front caliper bolts are not crossthreaded, and as far as the bleeding, I did it both ways. With the hand pump, as well as using an assistant, and doing it the old fashion way of having the assistant build pressure, and hold the pedal as I released the fluid and tightened up the bleeder screw. This was done many times on each wheel. I have clear fluid all the way through the system at this point.
Also, while bleeding the system up on stands, I could get some pressure to build up in the pedal, however as soon as I put the car back on the floor, and got into it, the pedal would go back to the floor with no pressure at all. This happened a few times.
