What could cause a 65 VW hydraulic reservoir to lose so much fluid every few days when none of the wheel cylinders show signs of leakage?

Probably from the reservoir it self or the lines going 2 the Master Cylinder or the Master Cylinder it self.Park the car on a tarp or many newspapers & that will show U where the leak is.could even B a brake line GOING 2 the rear brakes.

There is no hydraulic fluid in the transmission. However, there is hydraulic fluid in the clutch system. If the clutch fluid reservoir is empty it would cause clutch not to operate.

Use PASTE aka pipe dope. Any Teflon tape that is introduced into a hydraulic system can cause all kinds of problems. Tape can cause valves to not seat properly, allowing leakage, or bypass. Pumps can get damaged from tape also. Play it safe and use paste, if it does enter the hydraulic system, it will pass through the components and then get captured by the filter.

Regulates hydraulic pressure at a predetermined pressure setting so not to cause damage to hydraulic system.
