Bedford MK

I have a 72 Bedford MK with 500 diesel and 5 speed box. Truck has been sitting a while (dry storage) and developed a burst brake pipe. Ive fixed the pipe but now cannot get the air or for that matter fluid to come through the system. I topped up the resevour with fluid (the one supplying front brakes) then opened the bleed nipples but cannot get fluid to come through. Ive tried pumping the pedal but with no success. I also tried jambing the brake pedal down and then opened the bleed nipple thinking it would gravity bleed but again no succes. Any thoughts or advice?
