In my experience I have NEVER had to replace a slave cylinder. For me the
master cylinder has been the one to fail, much in the same way as described.
This experience comes from an urQ several 5ks and a 4kq. I'm sure that the
slaves go some times, but I've never had to deal with it.
I do agree that the MC in the 5kq is a PITA though ... you need to have
an allen wrench that has been cut to fit in the space between the bolt
head and the extension on the casting. I found two things ... it is
possible to purchase a rebuild kit (Beck/Arnley?), and some replacement
MCs have the inlet casting extension repositioned to allow a normal
allen wrench to be used. I'm sorry that I don't have the details here,
but I did post both the the q-list ... well, I found one ... see below ...
