Hi Mission,  Did you bled the master cylinder on the bench before you installed it?

Do you have the master cylinder with the brake failure switch mounted on the cylinder body?  If so, could it be that the piston/shuttle has moved to the fail position and no longer sending pressure to the rear brakes? Refer to Maddog's articles here  https://www.moke.com.au/in-the-garage/brake-system/95-tandem-master-overhaul and here https://www.moke.com.au/in-the-garage/brake-system/106-brake-fail-switches

I'm no expert on brakes, so just an idea for you to consider
