Hello Group,

Please help. I have a 1962 Chevy Stepside C10 with an inline 6 and three on the tree. The other day, I got in the truck and there was absolutely no resistance in teh clutch pedal. My buddy told me to check the master brake cylinder and it was empty. I put in fluid, pumped the clutch about 50 times and slowly but surely, the clutch "came back to life". When I looked under the truck afterwards, brake fluid was leaking from the transmision area.

My question is this....does the clutch use brake fluid from the master cylinder as if from a "slave cylinder" I have heard of slave cylinders for the clutch, but have never seen a situation where the fluid from the master cylinder would be used by the clutch. Somebody please explain this to me.

Thanks in advance!
