Started working for Dodge in 75 and can say that I only saw this set up a couple of times and never had to work on it. Most times I was under the coach to replace plugs and wires that had a tendency to burn up.
If there is a cap missing at one of the vacuum connections then that may have been a contributing factor to poor running condition. Have you checked the area of the missing cap with the engine running.
If you've lost a master cylinder's worth of fluid , you've got a leak , and if you haven't already replaced the wheel cylinders , I'd say that they would be the next item on the restoration list.
Also move the master cylinder forward off it's mounting , lines should flex enough to move an inch or so, and look for fluid leak there too.
BTW. Welcome to iRV2. looks like you have a real project on you hands.
