Is that for a front wheel drive car?
Most bleeding sequences seem to boil down to bleeding the wheels attached to the front master resivoir first. On some, that's rear to front, on others front to rear, and some go crossways. Most old MOPAR muscle cars use the front resivoir for the rear brakes, so I would assume farthest to closest.

I always was bleeding the old GMs furthest to closest until I read through the factory service manuals. Most of them say front first until about 1980 when they swapped ports on the master, or went to the cross system on FWD models. It seems to help get the air out faster.

Essentially, it doesn't really matter, as long as you get all the air out. If you have trouble with one wheel or axle, skip it until you do the others. I often hit each wheel one more time when I'm finished anyway.

Works for me.
