It turns out the metro brake m/c is not actually as simple as being an equally split system (despite them being the same bore). It is a primary and secondary system. On a metro the primary system (the bottom outlet) provides fluid to all four corners. The secondary (top outlet) only provides extra fluid to the front callipers. - Which is why metro callipers have two connections! - I had the rears connected to the primary system and the fronts to the secondary, which caused my issues.
You also have to bleed both bottom pairs of pistons of each calliper at the same time, which I haven't done successfully yet.
I have swapped them over, for the time being, I will bleed them and see how they perform. If the secondary system does not cope well for the rears, I will have to connect them all via a four way (as I did when I had the mini m/c) and then the secondary can feed the second connector on the front metro callipers, as it should.

Chopper, it was a long time ago now but I do remember him saying he built it, so that's interesting.
Progress to follow soon....
