My dragster has a Tilton master cylinder on it with a poly reservoir that is held in place with one of those split wire clamps. That thing has leaked since day one and I've tightened the clamp several times but it still seeps enough fluid that it collects on the lower frame rail and drips in the floor.

So has anyone else had this problem and if so, did you find a solution for it??

This one is the 74 series and can be setup either way but I really don't want to mount the reservoir on the aluminum firewall in the foot box. It's a little too flimsy for that. :-k
