[Mgs] MGB Disappearing brake fluid

Fluid can 'dry' if it falls on the floor and is left.

Booster can suck up the fluid, but that usually only happens when the engine 
is running, and as far as I know with the later integral booster the only 
route is from the master rear seal.

You won't really know until you fully bleed the system, just filling can 
leave air bubbles which may prevent further leaks.
