M/C leakout

After rebuilding my pedal cluster and reinstalling, the next morning I found a big puddle of brake fluid on the garage floor. The M/C was completely saturated by fluid as well as parts of it on the inside of the car. I'm not sure where the fluid is leaking from. I've never messed with this area before, and it never leaked before. I was planning on changing the fluid, but what other rehab does the system need? I'm not planning on changing out the M/C, just keeping int OG. Any tips=good. thanks

Also, any problems with just draining the system and then refilling and purging the air later when I get around to it?

Considering that you just messed with the pedal cluster, I would assume that you knocked one of the fluid feed pipes out of the master cylinder, or the hose came off further up the line.

Are you sure you put the feed lines into the top well enough. I've had a lot of trouble in the past getting the top seals to seat well enough. There is a washer, a rubber grommet, and the flared fluid feed tube x2 that has to be popped into the top of the M/C. I found I could only seat these lines with the M/C loose, then I would bolt it on afterward.
