Its been a while since I worked on a 71 specifically.. but iirc, there is 
one line front to rear, then a T to each rear wheel... so If you are getting 
fluid to the rear,, it will go to both.
take the lines off the T.. see if fluid is present....
take the lines off the wheel cyl.. see if fluid is present..
once you get fluid in all sections,, you can start to bleed the air ..

remember to keep the reservoir full of fluid,,

you can use a bleeder vacuum pump....
