It sounds to me like all you need are new seals in the MC.  It isn't hard
to do but if you get the redesigned seals take a good look at what you are
doing because the manual shows the originals and I ended up puting mine in
backwards because I was trying to use the haynes manual with the
redesigned seals.  They are not hard to do and should fix your problem.
