The master cylinder on my '69 RS is for power drum brakes.  My car is an 01C Norwood build; Final assembly on or about the 20-21 Jan 1969; VIN #19N581767

On the front of the master cylinder cap it says:

SERVICE WITH DELCO PARTS

On the rear of the master cylinder cap are the words:

USE DELCO BRAKE FLUID

Mine says something completely different.  O3B built, power front discs.  It reads:                   WARNING CLEAN FILLER CAP BEFORE REMOVING,  and  USE ONLY DOT? FLUID FROM A SEALED CONTAINER.  Cant read the # after DOT because of pitting.
