I did not remove the valve but blew from the cylinder to outlet and from outlet to master and saw a spray of fluid leave at both ends.

Brian, I'm thinking that if fluid is passing around the seal at the end of the plunger and staying in the master cylinder and not going along the hydraulic line, that I will be able to press the pedal down, am I putting 1 and 1 together and getting 3?

FrenchMike posted some pictures on here of good and worn seals in the master cylinder. Worth a look as those pics might be helpful to you.

You might just have a worn seal.---
