brake master cyl question!

Ive searched the knowledge base but found no answer to this. I converted my 67 nova to front disk brakes. I replaced the master cyl with a manual master cyl from a 75 chevy. I was planning on changing the prop valve if I had problems. Heres the question....... which of the 2 brake line ports are used to control which 2 lines. I always thought the front port was for front brakes and the rear was for rear brakes. If so was it different in my 67, (reversed),? I ask this because the new master cyl will only fit my old lines if I swap the lines around. I hope you guys understand what Im asking, its a bit hard to explain.

If one side of your master cyl. is larger,(holds more fluid) then that is your front brake side.

Many GM cars used the rear portion of the MC for the front brakes.

Brows the net for engine pictures of mid seventies Chevys.
Or ask on a Chevelle/Camaro Forum?
