clutch master cylinder reservior

Does anyone know of a fluid reservior that can be fitted directly on top of the clutch master cylinder instead of having it come from the brake reservior? I have a bit of a custom situation on my hands and it would just be best for me to seperate them. Do you guys know if its just a standard size nipple that connects the reservior line? Like maybe the grommet on it is the same as the brake master cylinder grommet.
Do older bugs or 911s or 914s have a seperate reservior? Any ideas are welcome.

Thanks

A feed nipple on the clutch master cylinder that points straight up rather than at such a sideways angle would do the job as well. If anyone knows where to get one of those that would be great.

Thanks

Take the hose off of the Master Cyl. Reservoir, put a cap on the nipple there and then run the hose to any remote tank. The brake fluid from the tank is only a gravity feed so it's not necessary to get fancy or anything

Find a remote reservoir container from a motorcycle. Specifically a sport bike. It will have a mounting tab, exit nipple, and a bladder equipped non spill screw on lid. Probably pick one up on ebay for peanuts.
