Hey guys need a bit of help.. Is there a reservoir on my 53 pathfinder? I took a quick peek and didn't see one,
Thanks I'm going back to the car to investigate further . It was in storage for the winter ..

It (the master cylinder) is probably under the floorboards on a 53. That's where it was on my 54 Chevy. You may also have a brake line or wheel cylinder leaking. Best to pull all 4 wheels and have a look.

Just like in 54 it was under the drivers floor on the 53s. Almost dead center of the drivers footwell. Should be about a 3" diameter heavy rubber plug in the floor board that allows access to the plug on the top of it.
