it wil work…for now. but the rest of the brakes are all mechanical so every time you hit the brakes guess what…you got the thing still moving but with no fluid. eventually it will get stuck cause it has no fluid. the job of the master cylinder is to equal out pressure to each one of the lines and to provide fluid to the lines. again…it will work for a while as long as you removed the excess fluid and all that but dont half and got fix the problem.
