That sensor on the end of your master cylinder is the brake light switch. I think they went to the pedal switch in 65? or 66 for sure.

Poes is correct, that is a pressure switch on the end of your MC for brake lights.
you have probably got more fuses, take a look on your headlight switch, 2 clips hold the fuse panel to the switch, flip em & you can pull the fuse holder out.
At least, i'm pretty sure the Comet has the same fuse set up as the early F;lanes

IM GOING TO JUMP A INLINE FUSE ACROSS IT TOMORROW TO SEE IF THE BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON. BUT I ORDERED THE SWITCH ANY WAYS. ONE LESS NASTY PART TO DEAL WITH. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE HELP...SCS
