Reservior vs No-Res type Master cylinders?
I just put in my brake pedals today, and in studying the plans see that a firewall reservoir is used (RV4). I have a Grumman Yankee that uses non-reservoir MCs on the pax side and reservoir-type MCs on the PIC side. I'm curious why the RV4 uses a separate reservoir. Is it simply for maintenance/safety issues - easy to fill, easy to check? Do side-by-side RVs also use a reservoir, or are they similar to the Grumman? My curiosity has been piqued...
