I don't recall anyone using a zerk fitting but I remember a guy who had
a Schraeder fitting on his master cylinder cap. Claimed it was for an
easy, one-man brake bleed. Don't know what he used for a pump and I
can't vouch for his success--never saw it in action.
It is a bleed screw used on the PB master cylinder. It is not on the manual
MC. Do you have a MC with a lid held by a thumbscrew or a metal clip? If a
thumbscrew, it is '63. If a metal spring clip, it is '64.
I have the thumbscrew cap. However, I don't have Power Brakes. I saw the
same mastercylinder w/bleed screw in kit at:

kit seem a reasonable price? I haven't priced out the individual parts.
