Question Sierra M/C oreintation

Hi

Could some body tell me as if this the correct way to run the brake pipe from the Sierra's master cylinder to the front and the rear pipes.

There are 3 ports from the M/C , the one at the back to the back wheels and the 2 at the front one to O/S and the other to the N/S?

as Flyerncle has said, just a little further info......

the forward union is off side front
center union is near side front
rear union is to the rear T piece

as when flyerncle & i stripped my car, i bent the bits of cut brake pipe that was still attached to the M/C in the direction they were originally feeding to.

Sorry to be thick, but when you say forward union do you mean the one closest to the pedal or closest to the front of the car?
