Corvette MC: which reservoir is which

I've been looking for this for an hour now. I'm just going to ask.

I have a Corvette Master Cylinder mounted to the frame on my 37 Chevrolet. It's a 4 wheel disc setup. Which reservoir goes to the front and which one goes to the back. I've seen conflicting pictures and I apparently can't think of the right terms to find this in a search.



Thanks,
Brandon

I'm pretty sure the port closest to the firewall (on a normal car) is for the front circuit, which would be the forward port on your setup.

The largest chamber is the front - and on the 'vette m/c, the furthest from the mounting flange is the front brakes. There are universal m/c's with outlets on each side, but not all OEM styles. I ended up having to 'cross' mine for proper fit up.

The top line (looks as though it's just ahead of the cross member) goes to the front, the other that runs under and in that cast in notch), to the rears:
