So Jim, now ya gotta figure out where the missing fluid was leaking from, or if ya just forgot to top it off when ya changed the cylinders. :-)Bill SmithB 72 TR680 TR7B

Good point, but if that's dry and there are no other visible signs of leakage, perhaps the business end of the slave cylinder may be leaking into the gearbox bell housing. (I'm not familiar with the TR8, but the slave cylinder is mounted into the bell housing on my TR7.)Bill SmithB '80 TR7B '72 TR6B

The rule of cylinders is "ALWAYS REBUILD BOTH AT THE SAME TIME" "



Brakes or clutch - replace one the other will fail! It's God's Law of

Hydraulics.  Not what you learned in engineering school, but life!
