Shouldn't have to do it with the engine running. I bled brakes on my '90 Mercury just fine.

What procedure are you using? It took me a while to figure out how to bleed brakes properly. My original technique was off.

Motor off ,it really takes two people . Pump pedal until it pumps as high as it will ,have someone open the bleader while keeping pressure on the pedal . When the peddal pushes to the floor ,stop when you feel resistance or you will trip the valve , close the bleeder and let the pedal up . You may need to repeat a few times for each wheel ,checking master cylinder level as you go

I used the vacuum method it just took longer than i thought. Vacuum applied at each wheel cylinder works great as I am a one man operation

if you have time and are a one man operation do a gravity bleed. Top up with fluid, starting at the back then the front open one bleed screw at a time. leave it for a few hours on each one.
