Question Brakes won't bleed

I just finished installing new front disc pads and since my Ram 2500 is a 95, I thought I would bleed the old fluid out and replace it with synthetic.
I flushed the system using a pressure bleeder and have clean fluid in the system, however, when I start the truck, the pedal slowly goes to the floor as I apply pressure. I purchased a Phoenix V12 pressure pump and reverse bled the brakes starting at the farthest wheel and worked my way up. Same problem; start the engine and pedal moves to floor when pressure is applied. HELP, I am at a loss since the brakes had no other issues than worn front pads when I started. Someone said I may have damaged the master cylinder when pumping the brakes since I pumped past the normal travel of the master cylinder when I first tried to bleed the system.
