Wild gueess here.  Many years ago I rebuilt the (dual) MC on an MGA, and
afterwards couldn't get the clutch slave to bleed properly.  No matter how
much pumping and bleeding we did it still had air coming out, maybe several
cubic feet of the stuff.  Apparently the fresh MC would create a small
vacuum in the line on the return stroke, and the old slave rubber cup was
so weak that it was sucking air in past he the slave cup on the return
stroke.  I repacked the slave with a new rubber cup and all was well again.
 Have you repacked or replaced the wheel cylinders?
