Smile 76 280Z Brake Master Cylinder

we changed out the brake master cylinder , put in all new lines , our question is does the large brake master cylinder reservoir go to the front brakes or the back brakes? Thank You

The one with the larger reservoir (closest to the firewall) goes to the front brakes. Don't get them mixed up! LOL

y'all wouldn't happen to have a schematic of where the lines come in at the fire wall to the proportioning valve to master cylinder ? I think the previous owner got things hooked up wrong , we have been fighting the brakes for days.....thank you
