Remote reservoir positioning ?

A search turned up only one vague reference to my question and I think I already know the answer but just want to make sure. If installing a remote fill on a clutch master, does the reservoir always have to be higher than the master to gravity feed?

After fabricating my clutch master mount and then looking at it every day for the last couple of months, I'm unhappy with the reservoir sticking up above the front edge of the cowl - as you can see on the right in the pic below. Worst case I can rebuild the mount to lower the master a couple inches, but I was hoping for a somewhat easier alternative. Also, that solution changes the "throw" on the pedal/plunger somewhat and I don't know the repercussions of doing that.



Here's a shot from the other side of the firewall. Anybody got a bright idea how to eliminate that reservoir without lowering the entire master?
