Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

There is a divider between the front and rear halfs of the master cylinder about half way up the reservoir. Above that it will leak out the rear... below it it wont. If you fill it full it will probably resume leaking.. if no eiher the leak has resolved itself (happens sometimes if the leak was a dry o-ring) or the system is full of air and not allowing fluid to flow.

I would try bleeding them and see if its still leaking. You might get lucky.

Let me know if you need anything further and please be sure to rate my service so I get credit for helping you today. Thanks
