 do I gotta order from the usual sources?

I know this is a day late, but I just got to my e-mail this morning.

It sounds to me like air is getting into the plastic line.  That would be the 
first thing to replace.  I assume that brake fluid isn't flowing out of 
anything.  Usually when the MC or slave cyl is bad you get fluid all over.  
If there is a crack in the clutch line, it would allow air to get in more 
easily than allowing fluid to flow, hence, no leak, but only air at the 
bleeder screw.

If you get desperate, give me a call.  (You should have my number.  If you 
send e-mail, I check it multiple times a day while at work.)  The line in my 
Midget is probably sound, and I'm not on the road yet.  You can have it and 
I'll get a new one.  Maybe we can split the cost.

Let me know how you make out with it.  (I didn't know you had an AOL account!)
