This is my second new master that leaks this way. Is it something that I do wrong? I cant believe the push rod is pushing to one side, since it is fastened in the booster? (I have power brakes).
Why not pull it apart and see if there is a nick on the neoprene cup or some debris. These so called Corvette MC have been a problem for a couple guys I know. Turns out that a lot of these "new" parts are either rebuilt or of Far East manufacture. A good friend has an older 'vette, a '79 that he uses as a daily driver in the summer, and he is on his 3rd or 4th MC within the past year.
I know you are in Norway, but you might look at Rock Auto Parts
here and maybe consider a rebuild kit. I recommended these folks to a guy in Switzerland a couple weeks ago and he was able to order parts for international shipping. No clue on what the final cost was but it is an option. Also - rebuild kits are in the 20-25 USD range.
I tried the Pirate Jack website and it kept kicking me out
You are having no end of brake problems with this car
