Front Brakes Gone After Changing Tire

Good day all...

I replaced the front tire on my 2010 FE450 today and when I put everything back together and test drove it --- NO FRONT BRAKE. Lever had no pressure and pressed all the way to the grip. I pumped many, many, many times and no improvement.

This is probably the third time I've removed the front wheel but have not had this issue in the past. Brake fluid is full, nothing leaked. I removed the caliper and used a screwdriver to press down on the pad, put it back together and it's "a little" better but nothing like before.

Any thoughs???

Need to bleed the brakes. There is air in the system.
