I forgot to ask about this. Last week my neighbor’s kid came by with his life savings on wheels. The brakes felt strange. I popped the hood and noticed the master cylinder had hardly anything in the front half. No wonder when you look at the angle it sits at on level pavement. What the hell? I never seen this on factory original cars from back when. Are you supposed to raise the rear or park with the front downhill to fill the reservoir? LOL!

That’s the problem. When you fill it on level ground it’s only 50% full. It just had new pads installed and I bled the brakes.
