Got it, I thought you were putting teflon on the plugs that replaced the bleeders that should've been there.

This is the '86 listed in your sig? The MC reservoir should have a divider about halfway up such that even if you lose all the fluid out the front, the rear reservoir will still be half full and your rear brakes will function.

Or are we talking about some older car with single-circuit brakes?
