master cylinder setup

I have a 2000 focus zx3, it is parked at my sisters and I am unable to get to it right now to look at what I'm asking about.

Does anyone know how the master cylinder is set up, IE, are 1 front and 1 rear on same line or is there one rear line braking for the rears and 2 separate lines braking for the front?

Also I'm trying to figure out what size brake lines and type of flares are used and about how many feet of brake line it has?

Thanks for your help,
Chris

Diagonal setup, or one front and one opposite side back for each line. Say, front left and rear right. And why on earth would you be wanting to change all the lines?

Going to put in a hydraulic handbrake and also a bias valve on my rally car so we need to switch from diagonal to rears together. Also converting to to disc.,

Thanks for the info!
