I went to move my 53 Cavalier with Easamatic from one spot in the shop to another and found absolutely no brakes. Hard pedal. I inspected it on the lift and see no problems;, fluid leaks, bad flex lines etc. Vacuum lines and tank look intact. I have no idea how to get to the master cylinder to see if it has fluid. Help appreciated.
Good news. I removed the fabric connector on drivers side vent and got to master cylinder fill plug from above. The connector blocked my view of the M.C. The M/C was nearly empty. Why, I don't know. Filled and now have brakes. Lifted car and found no leaks underneath. Guess the fluid evaporated over the years. Unfortunately, the connector is toast.
