How did you lose the fluid in the first place ? If the back reservoir went dry on you then you will have to bleed the entire system, I would do a gravity bleed. Starting at the Right rear, then the left rear, then the right front, and last the left front. If you have someone to help it will make it easier.

a rusty brake line failed and bled out the rear section of the master...... I replaced the entire rear lines including hydraulic hose and wheel cylinders.... I wound up buying a mytyvac 8000 and bled the rears while my g/f filled the reservoir........... worked great. brakes are stiff and on top now.... thank you for your response.
