brakes ? bleeding brakes

I bought a 88 mazda b2200, and the brake pedal goes to the floor before it starts to stop , the master clyinder is full but when I pump the brakes it almost empties the clyinder then it goes back to full ,does this mean I need to bleed them and if so how do I do that .I am a raw beginner in auto repair but am a quick learner any help will be appreciated

No, it means there is hydraulic failure in the system. The master, the wheel cylinders, or the lines are wasted. You could also have worn shoes which will cause the pistons in the wheel cylinders to extend too far.

Check autolibrary.org below for more on brakes. If you do not fully understand the steps and procedures, bail out and have the brakes fixed professionally. Brakes are not something to gamble with.
