Did you OPEN the bleed valve?
Try cleaning the dirt out of the core of the bled valve with a small 
drill bit twisted in your fingers.
Try taking the bleed valve ALL the way out and clearing the hole 
under it out with the same drill bit, then leave the valve out and 

There are lots of things that can thwart you.  Just be imaginative.
