Look for a 'high point' on lines, air can be trapped, check master cylinder mounting as I've seen weird angles trap air. One 'trick' I've used for years is to get either Teflon tape or pipe sealing compound and apply a little to bleeder threads, it prevents leaks while bleeding.(and keeps the paint on various components ) How old are brake lines? If original 15 yrs t'is a long way past recommended change interval which is usually 4 years (although very few people change brake lines that 'early' unless going to stainless steel or kevlar) Check all sliding pins on calipers, the fluid pressure will flex mounting and give good initial feel but if stuck at an angle will 'push back' over a few hours giving excess lever travel until 'pumped up' again
I'm not a complete idiot, but, I'm working on it
