yup just as standard. furthest to closest.
since the MC is probably old, put a block of wood underneath the brake pedal so when you/a buddy, pumps the pedal it dosent go past its normal travel. that prevents the o rings running into built up gunk that will tear them.
of course if you are using a power/vacuum bleeder none of that applies.
