If you have the scanner, ill pay you to come to my place and bleed my brakes. I replaced the hard lines that go to the rear of the car so since i opened up the abs pump, the abs shoulc be bled

If this is a 4th gen fbody, you don't need a scan tool. Put the car in the air, run it up to at least 5 mph, apply the brakes. This opens the abs block. Leave the car running and bleed.

Correct. The braking event above 5 mph causes the block to open. When you turn the car off, it closes back up as it's activated by solenoids.
