    Which reservoir on the master cylinder is the rear system?? Which line? The large diameter or the smaller diameter? I am trying to bypass my combo valve to get my rear discs to release, and the line I joined didnt help at all. Actually it caused my rears to stop working totally.

    Help!

    PS, got the prop valve bypassed. The rear brakes still groan and chatter. How exact do you have to be with the alignment of the calipers to the rotor? Thats the only thing I can think of causing this. They must be off line, but everything looks straight to the naked eye. Is it possible that even tho there is such a small misalignment that would cause them to groan?

    generally the large reservoir is for the front.

    Mine is opposite of above.. the larger front reservoir is for the front and the smaller rear reservoir is for the rear.

    What, Me Worry?
