I would agree that the MDL slave cylinder puts side loads on the slave cylinder in all directions and has got to go. I'll be putting a Tilton internal slave cylinder in this winter. I've included pictures of how I originally could not get enough clearance to disengage the clutch "last image" while now I'm at the other end of adjustment "first picture" after a season sometimes trying to start out in second gear to eliminate wheel spin off the line. From one end to the other this slave cylinder setup has been off axis in both the vertical and horizontal planes.Some of the slave cylinder kits tend to side load the piston and this will wear it out. If you can configure a clutch slave so that the rod is a direct push on the piston, they will last much longer. I fabricated a bracket for a Wilwood pull type slave that was bolted to the motor mount. Used a stock type 5.0/T5 throwout bearing and clutch fork. The line of pull was direct and the slave was working well when I sold it 3 years later.
In my opinion the master cylinder end of things is not Rub Goldberg. Straight and short distances if you follow the directions. Still leaking though!
