Need help on an old Condor 2 Coach

I have looked hi and low tring to figure out the brakes in my 1972 Condor 2. I only drove it once before I parked it and I'm not sure if the brakes are gonna work. The pedal is spring loaded and travels all the way to the floor. I have been looking everywhere on the thing for a master cylinder, but can't find it anywhere. The owners manual don't even mention one, but they are hydraulic brakes (drum all the way around). I do not remember if thats how the pedal was. I just know it would grab about half way down....never had to go further than that. It has sat for 2 1/2 years and I got someone coming to trade for it, but I need to figure out if it will stop. Kinda important on a 12,000# vehicle. I could put it in gear, but I want to make sure the brakes work. Anyone possibly know where they hide that damn master in these things. There is no access panel behind or around the drivers seat. I've torn the carpet up looking.

Hi, I think you will find the master cylinder right under the floor, where the break pedal is. You may have to go under it and undo the fluid cap and blindly pour the fluid in.. I would cut the carpet and the floor area right where the master cylinder is and make a usable opening there. That's what I had to do to my old rig. Hope this helps. Jerry

Just an update on these motorhomes. I have found out that it is a Slave/Master setup. There is the Slave cylinder right next to the brake pedal that the pushrod from the pedal goes into and in turn the fluid is pumped down to a Master cylinder on the power booster. You add fluid to the Slave cylinder by lifting the dust sleeve where the push rod goes in and use a turkey baster to squirt fluid in.

I talked to the guys at Ford Heavy Trucks, as it is a P-Series cabover chassis, and they were very helpfull in explaining the system to me. I have not as of this post completed this process, but intend to over the next couple days. If this indeed is how it is and it works out for me, I will post a confirmation here so that anyone else who may have one of these rare motorhomes can have some info on these brakes.
