    mine seeps a tiny bit,replaced under warranty,started being damp again a month later. Said to heck with it,if the paint starts bubbling on the master again I will get it changed again.

    Mine is excactlly at the fill mark and it still weeps a bit.I even checked the spec. and torqued them,which I have never done with a master cyl. cap before.
