-------- It is the black/dark cylinder mounted on or close to the firewall, with one round/serrated nut on top. There is one (or 2?) master cylinders just above the drivers footwell area but inside the engine compartment . One has a little rectangular fluid res. , I checked it too and it has green/blue color fluid. I guess the ATF has not gone everywhere, maybe? ? So, if that be true, then maybe I won't have to rebuild/replace All the cylinders . ...Thanks, ... Stephen R.
