116 brakes (Alfa 90 2.0 -85)

116 brakes (Alfa 90 2.0 -85)

I'm desperate for help!
What could be wrong with my lovely Alfa 90? After mounting new brake pads front right the pedal goes all the way down with no resistance. I've bled the system several times with the same (bad) result. It does get a bit better when pumping the pedal but it only lasts for a couple of seconds. Could it be the main brake cylinder?

Check for brake fluid leaking anywhere. or brake pipes expanding when the pedal is pressed.

No, I changed front left as well...There are no leakages anywhere. Someone told me to lift the rear of the car as high as possible and leave over night and then bleed the system again. Apparently that would collect all the air. I'll give it a go this weekend.
