Bavaria Clutch problem

Hi there,

My 72 Bavaria has developed clutch problems!!! Started out by loosing clutch pressure (nearly rear ended a car while driving) but regained pressure when I pumped the clutch pedal a few times. When I got back home I checked clutch fluid, level had dropped a bit but no sign of any leak / drips.

With engine turned off I pumped the clutch pedal again and could hear squelching sound coming from the master cylinder. I presume it's safe to assume this is my problem??? Question is now will I get away with a replacing the seals or will I have to get a new unit. Anyone know of where I can get either / both of these?

Also, read somewhere that prob best to change slave cylinder at the same time. Any thoughts?

Thanks for your help.
