If gravity bleeding manual brakes and fluid seeps from rt rear, lt rear, frt left when valves are open...but left front is bone dry with no fluid leakage...does that narrow it to a bad brake cylinder and or a small leak some where...I can't find any puddles of fluid.
I got my brakes back by cracking the front right valve, putting a vacuum hose on it, the other end in a bottle of brake fluid and pumping pedal twice.
Ended up with master cylinder half full (refilled it) but a full hard brake pedal.

I'd look at the wheel cylinder 1st.Have tested the brakes with some one else pumping the peddle to see if you get any fliud out or if you can still turn the wheel?
Brakes are a rough job without some ones help.Unless you have one of those mity vac bleeders.
