Could it be as simple as air coming in through the bleeder screw when I am bleeding? Everything is set to go except the clutch, and I am at a dead end. So other car owners were telling me,, " you have air in your lines, bleed it" I knew air was not an issue.. You may also like Mar 8, I recant,, there is nothing wrong with the after market master clutch in the picture i posted prior. Worth ever second of the work.
Here is a couple of ideas I would offer. Had to settle for using the old hose without butchering the pipe and bracket, but the old and new slave hose threads start in different places so the old hose ended up twisted when fully tightened. Not just pumping the piston in, but keeping it in, whilst you bleed the master all the way through. I checked the master cylinder under the hood and it appeared clean leak free but I went ahead and topped off the fluid I had the correct fluid from replacing the lines about 2 years ago.
But there is a permanently fixed section of semi-rigid plastic pipe IIRC where he clutch pipe runs across over the transmission tunnel by the heater. The only adjustment on these hydraulic systems is at the clutch pedal to keep the free travel correct. So thanks for all of your comments and ideas, it was a great help.

The MG Experience www. I purchased a MG Midget. The correct fix would be to remove the pedals and replace. The Live MG Midget and Sprite Technical BBS is active now. Look for leaks around the slave cylinder push rod, this is a common area for leaks. Check the end of the pushrod and its connecting pin.
