As we are all aware the master cylinder contains dual pistons.
In the process of dismantling my old/rusty/leaking master cylinder I noticed that the brake lines were connected in a "funny?" way.
The back connection in the m/c (closer to the driver) was used for the left front wheel line, and the 2 up front connections were split between the right front wheel and the back wheels....
Now my question... is this correct?
Aren't the 2 front connections for front wheels and the back connection for the back wheels????
I thought the whole idea, in a case of failure of one of the pistons was to have either front brakes or back brakes. With the above setup it seems that if the front piston fails I would only have the left wheel brake working, else the back wheels and right wheel only .
Am i missing something? Or is this a case of PO ignorance????
