Master cylinder

So i had to keep topping off my brake fluid like once a week and i finally found out my master cylinder was leaking everytime i pushed the clutch in. Any ideas on a good replacement?

Replaced my clutch master cylinder last night before it started snowing. Took 2.5hrs. Was a PITA, but it does work now. Mine was leaking like a sieve. I did not need to remove the tire and inner fender. My big hands would not fit through the access hole. Used my Mite-vac to bleed the system. Placed the feed line above the master cylinder to keep the fluid from draining.

A 10mm gearwrench would have been helpful.
