Default Conv top fluid question

I've always had to top off the rsvr for the top motor about once a year. Usually an ounce or so. Yesterday, it took about a cup. The top's working fine. No sign of air in the system. I could not find a visable leak anywhere. In a closed system like that, where can it go?
I run Dot-3 brk fluid (per Ford specs). I'd really appreciate any idea's or help on this.

And yes, I'm still playing with sway-bars and brakes. I would recommend to anyone considering a conversion to just use the (11") Granada system. The SBC kit is nice quality, but it doesn't stop a bit better than any mid-size Ford or GM. The 4 piston calipers are a waste. Just use the stock Ford parts. It'll stop fine and no problems with swaybars. I now have a pair of Granada spindles (ebay) that I'm going to try. Hopefully the SBC parts will adapt. If not, There will be a (slightly used) SBC kit on ebay.

Thanks again,

John Byers
