So I put it all back together and now it works like a dream. Can't figure out what was different so I have to conclude that the bleeding process requires the portholes to be open. That was the only difference today!

But it works so I won't question why. Thanks all for the suggestions.
G;ad to hear you had success. Betcha feel a LOT better.

What does your owner's manual say about bleeding? Sometime RTFM does actually help. Could it be that when you replaced them you torqued them correctly?
