I have seen the flexible lines block up to the point that no fluid passes through. It has happened to me but only on one side. Keep this in mind in case everything else fails. Good Luck.

According to a Chevrolet Training Booklet I have, the metering or "hold off" valve "delays the application of the front disc brakes momentarily so the rear drum brakes can build up sufficient pressure to overcome the force of their retractor springs. This valve then provides balanced braking."

Regarding your front brake problem, I had a similar problem because I had not bench bled the master cylinder and had a slug of air in the brake lines thet I couldn't get out with normal bleeding.
