Did you bench bleed the master cylinder? You must get the air out of there first.

You will then need to bleed the whole system. "Cracking" brake lines will not remove the air. You must force the air out thru bleed screws.

Check online for proper brake bleeding procedure for your vehicle.

A service manual would be a good investment, or download from the internet.

There might just not be very much brake pad left, so the pedal almost goes to the floor.
