Does it gain any pressure and slowly go to the floor, or is there no back pressure at all?

yeah i remember my wifes contour i thought i blew the master cyl out of it. The pedal would fade about 1/2 way before catching. Turns out i installed one pad in backwards. It was a late work night and i was tired. After i heard that i was pretty embarrassed. I had heard that if the calipers extend too far it can wreck the master cyl, i think that was just common on that car, but you already replaced that so i don't know what else to think. Can you have someone else push on the pedal while you watch the lines to see if any air is coming out still?
