Master brake cylinder
Hi everyone. Need your opinion or fact, based on the following. I replaced my single reservoir master cylinder on my '62 Impala, with a dual reservoir master cylinder. This car is equipped with a power booster and has drum brakes all around. The ports on the mc accommodate a 3/16" line in the front and a 1/4" line in the rear. I ran a single 3/16" line from the rear brakes to the front reservoir on the mc. I used the rear 1/4" reservoir to feed the front brakes. I've been told that you should use the front reservoir for the front brakes and the rear reservoir for the rear brakes. If true, then I have it backyards. Both reservoirs appear to be the same size containing the same amount of fluid. I'm wondering what the difference is and if it does matter which reservoir feeds which line. I certainly want it correct and functioning properly. I will change it if it matters, but would like to hear from others first. Thank you, Carmine.
