I'll jump into this subject. A couple of years back I replaced my brake
master cylinder ('72 MKIII) with a new, in the coated wax paper, Lockheed
unit. I drive my car about once a week in good weather and not at all in
winter. It weeps brake fluid onto the floor under my feet on a regular
basis. (It REALLY PISSES ME OFF!) Another 72 Midget owner in town (frame
up restoration but mine's faster and I know they are secretly jealous)
indicates they have the same problem.
However, last weekend, I took it out to the road course and ran it hard
all weekend. Not a drop of brake fluid leaked.
