The cover fits tight. I think the key clue here is that there was no leak prior to replacing the wheel cylinders, so the leak is perhaps due to something I did while bleeding the system, or something I failed to do. Is it possible that replacing the wheel cylinders tripped something in the proportioning valve that's causing a pressure build up in the M/C to force fluid past the gasket whenever I depress the brake pedal? Or if the fluid level in the M/C dropped too low would failing to bench bleed the M/C cause this problem?
