    I need to add some material to the rod due to wear. How the heck do I remove it from the clutch mc? The pedal end was easy.

    Looks like it's retained by a snap ring and disassembly of the mc is required.

    Watch it after you take it apart though...I had a brand new one that was leaking through the end there, made short work of the paint on the inside of the firewall.

    Hmmm I didn't think it was removable without destroying the seal?
    I would get a new one and start from scratch...I hate doing things twice:D

    IIRC there is nothing there but the rubber boot that "clips" onto the outside of the master, and the seal on the piston. Probably need to be careful re-installing the piston past the snap ring groove, and you are right, if it's old, it may be a better idea to just replace it.

    I didn't notice mine was leaking for months. It was an extremely slow "leak" and I never felt it in the pedal.
