so im redoing my master cylinders and supply hoses.. and i got everything in.. and just about to mount the reservoirs back in.. and i was like.. umm which hose goes to which reservoir?

sooo pop quiz.. without replacing anything, or shooting fluids into the brake system how can i identify which hose for which pedal?

Open one of the bleeder screws, blow in the hoses, and note which hose makes air come out of the open screw.

Seems like they should be fine either way.

open one bleeder for front brakes, one from rear brakes and the one for your clutch, buy an extra quart of fluid and hook up your new pressure bleeder to one of the reservoirs, start pumping pedals and see which one bleeds first,

alternative, drop steering column, disconnect all hoses, and run compressed air through them or pour brake fluid in one reservoir at a time and wait downstream for the hose to drip, then slip it onto the corresponding nipple
good luck with it

Which is which, you'll be fine. Hook one up, see which it supplies. Label or swap to meet your need to match stock locations (whatever that is).
