Where is the leak? The only parts on the MC itself that can be replaced are the plastic reservoir, the level sensor / cap on the reservoir, the pressure switch, and the pump motor. The internal stuff in MC itself cant be serviced at home. They are very complex, and require clean room conditions for assembly. Your best bet might be to get a complete working assembly from someone parting out a rust bucket.

Do you mean one of the 3 brake lines coming out of the botom of the MC is leaking? If so, just replace the line. One relatively common leak location is the PRC pressure switch in the line to the rear brakes under the MC.

There are 2 (if I remember correctly) flexible "rubber" (no clue exactly what they are made of) lines on the MC between the reservoir and the MC body that could leak. These lines are under virtually zero pressure. Those can be replaced with the correct type of material.
