I wondered about that.  I think the pedal was all the way up... just
undid everything now and at least I still have brakes.  I wanted to
flush the whole thing out though, not just bleed a few ounces.  Will try
again tomorrow, in better light!  I'll make sure the pedal is *all* the
way up, and clamp the proportioning valve towards the rear axle to allow
max flow.
