It is leaking around the fill cap? If yes what is the inner diameter? I would look for a flat EPDM rubber washer. I don’t know the TR2 so perhaps that’s not an option.

My original MC has been professionally rebuilt.  The MC has been installed for 6 mo. but only driven about 8 “test” miles.  The MC leaks around the seal...and I’m using Dot 3. The filler cap is installed on the back side at the exit pipes per the manual.  I’ve read somewhere that the reservoir should not be filled completely, but don’t remember the exact criteria.  Also, would changing to a cork gasket help?  Is cork compatible with Dot 3?  I understand that this is a common problem, but I’d like to reduce the problem to something like a weep.  Thanks.
