So I'm new to grassroots and I'm hoping you guys can help me. I have 93 Miata and I'm having an odd clutch issue. I have a leak somewhere in the hydraulic system. I've replaced the slave cylinder(oem), clutch line(949 racing race line), and bleeder valve(speed bleeder) with all new parts and its still leaking somewhere. I put thread sealer on the clutch line and the bleeder and it still didnt help. I filled up the clutch master cylinder yesterday and this morning it was at the minimum line. None of the hardlines have any damage and I haven't loosened any of the fitting leading to the clutch master cylinder. I'm not seeing any leaks on the firewall from the master cylinder itself. I'm at a loss, do you guys have any advice on what it could possibly be?

Internal leak in the master cylinder... fluid is leaking past it into the lines/slave?

I suppose that could be it. I havent seen any puddles or anything under it.
