1988 240 brake bleeding. 200 1988


I have a 88 240. Brake fluid was dark, so I decided to flush brakes. Brakes worked fine.
Bled brakes, by myself, with a catch bottle and tube; Fill res. Loosen bleeder. Pump brakes, refill res, etc. until clear fluid is seen in catch bottle. I did FL, FR, LR RR. LR was extremely hard to push fluid through, RR almost impossible. I could get maybe 2 oz. fluid out of LR caliper after VIGOROUS pressure on brake. Very abnormal. Now brake light is on, and brakes are crap. When in reverse, it feels like brakes are binding. I have been flushing brakes for yers, and never had a caliper that would not flow fluid easily.
What have I done? Very frustrating
