First try bleeding. When you replace a wheel or master cylinder, you should replace them all. Also, brake fluid should be changed every 5 years with the correct type.

I hope you've changed fluid with each bleed. The correct way to bleed is to start with the rear passenger one, then driver rear, then passenger front and finally driver front. You're actually working back to the master cylinder. Each wheel should be bled 3 times.

I thought you had fixed that. Clamping off is an emergency procedure, not a fix. Because of liability law, the only advice I can give is get thee to a brake specialist.

Please, please, please do what your grandfather would have done. Get to a brake shop immediately.

Vacuum leak in brake booster. Check with a gauge if you have one.

Kudos if you sell or junk it. Otherwise you're going to waste a lot more money. There is a point of no return.

I've started jobs where head gaskets needed replacing and found that some head milling was necessary, which of course comes under the do not try this at home heading.
