Are there and CMC that are better designed / last longer then others? Mine just started leaking and I don't feel like doing this every 60,000 miles. Thanks for the how to!

To the best of my knowledge there aren't to many options. I have only ever seen plastic ones. You can try looking around, but ive never seen anything better. Is this your first time replacing this part?

OK, finally got the clutch bled. After a couple of hours trying a mighty-vac and the old fashioned way i still had a soft pedal. Last resort i had a large syringe, put a piece of aquarium tube on it then filled the syringe with brake fluid. Put the tube on the bleeder screw and pushed fluid through the system. Air must have been trapped in the clutchs master cylinder which is the highest point in the system besides the fluid resevoir. While pushing the syringe full of fluid through the system you could hear the bubbles escaping the master cylinder and going up to the resevoir. The pedal was solid instantly!!

This fine post should be a sticky or in the archive. Just my opinion, being a former moderator here.
