The plastic resavor that holds the break fluid. When you have to swap your old to a new master cylinder, it seems it all ways leaks at the lower aera where there seat with the clamps on I snug it a little if I see any sign of any seeping of fluid. Any suggestions, just don't want to damage the plastic resavor but do want to stop the seeping. I only have the front one doing this last I saw. Ant tips or tricks.

"It's like comparing a wooden roller coaster to a modern modern roller coaster. Without a doubt the modern roller coaster is faster, quieter and smoother. But people still love to ride the wooden roller coasters. The sounds, vibrations, jerks and jolts all add to the experience. Sure a wooden roller coaster may not be as fast, but it's sure a fun ride that can equally scare the crap out of you." - Annette

FSM say to never reuse. What I do is put in a sandwich bag to keep them dry hold them up in a pan of boiling hot water. They are more pliable when warm and soft. The clamp will squeeze them better.
I have done the boiling water thing when installing new reservoirs and haven't suffered a leaker yet. Minute or two in the boiling water should do the trick.
