Clutch Master Cylinder suggestions
A little background:
I've had 3 clutch master cylinders fail on me in the past 3 years. The first was presumably stock, and the others were O'Reilly parts (PowerTorque I think is the brand name) which are complete crap. They have this particular rubber piece which disintegrates and contaminates the hydraulic fluid. Here's a pic of the fluid that I flushed that had been in there for about 7 months:
The fluid then clogged and killed my slave last time, too.
The PowerTorque has a lifetime warranty, but I really don't want to have to replace my master cylinder every <1 year.
It looks like my options are:
Replace it every year (free, except time and annoyance)
Buy a quality aftermarket one (?)
Go OEM (~$120).
What brands of master cylinders have you had good luck with, and for how long?
