    Wilwood Clutch Master Cylinder leaking on AK

    Master cylinder is leaking from the seal inside the car - a couple of photos attached. Have been online this morning searching and seems rebuild kits are available. Is the rebuild an easy job or would the advice be to replace the whole unit? The fluid leaking looks pretty crappy.

    Thanks in advance

    kits are usually pretty straightforward, and much cheaper than a new unit - until you strip it down you will not know if the bore is damaged or not.
    If damaged or in any doubt get a new one - if smooth to the feel - amazing how accurate and sensitive a little finger is when assessing the bore condition.
    Just be careful when replacing seals as its not unheard of to damage the new seals when being "rough" during build up.
    Fluid being crappy is not an issue as you will need to replenish and bleed with new stuff when re installing your lovely repaired unit !
