Master Cylinder Question

I have a new master cylinder for a disc/drum brake application. One of the reservoirs is larger than the other. Which is for the front disc and which is for the rear drum?

with the master installed in the car, the larger reservoir points toward the front of the car.

The larger reservoir is for the front disc brakes, they require much more fluid than drum brakes.

big/little reservoirs?

The larger reservoir is for the front discs. Just a few days ago (maybe a week ago or so??), we had a thread going on here about routing brake lines, etc. Search for it and you might find it useful with some related questions.
good luck.
