FYI. I bought all new brakes about six months ago including new booster and master from Wilkinson. The master leaked almost immediately between the reservoir and the body of the master. I was in the L.A. area soon after and brought it back. Steve pulled a new reservoir off the shelf and swapped it out. I installed it and bled the brakes again. A day or so went by and I noticed it was leaking again so, I called Steve and he sent me a new one. I R&R the master and bled the system AGAIN!. Soon after it started to leak at the same place. I got a syringe and sucked out as much fluid as possible and pulled the reservoir and removed grommets, cleaned everything with alcohol. I found that Yamabond case sealer would hold up to DOT3 and 4 so, I used it to seal all the reservoir contact surfaces and it has not leaked for a month. It seems all the vendors are selling the same master cylinder so, if you buy a new one take the time to seal it before you install.
