Leaky clutch cylinder - fix or replace?

The clutch master cylinder has started (and when empty finished lol ) leaking...

How much of a pain is it to buy the repair kit and fit the new seals? A new master cylinder doesn't seem to be that pricey. I've not done one of these before, if it's a real pita to replace the seals I'd rather save the hassle and swap on a new unit.

But on the flip side, it does seem silly to throw money away if it's not needed.

Thanks. :)

It's been a while since I rebuilt a clutch master, but it should be rather straightforward.
Even with the cost of honing the bore (to remove some light pitting) it still was much cheaper than a new one.

But do check the bore carefully otherwise you'll be doing it all over again in the near future.
