53 Ford coupe Brake Lights ??????

I have a 53 Ford coupe that doesn't have any brake lights. All of the other functions of the tail lights work just not the brake lights. I have power at the switch mounted on the master cylinder, when the brake is applied I get power though the switch. This is were I lose it. I have no idea where the other side of the switch goes. Can anyone out there help?

the power goes to the master cyl switch then the output goes to the turn signal switch. when the turn signals are OFF the power then is supposed to go to both the stop-turn bulb filiments. . when one turn side is on, that side is routed thru the flasher and the non blinking side is to have constant stop lite power ( when the brakes are on )
