Check the cover to see if its not warped somehow, take a piece of steel, I keep a 1" thick piece around just to check items that can warp. Anyway lay the cover on it to see if it meets the surface of the master cylinder flat, it could be bent/warped, from what I have no idea but that can be one way of checking it, yeah, yeah I know it has a lip on it but you should be able to check it anyway and the edges of the master cylinder have to be super clean. Pull the gasket out of the top and clean all the rust, whatever out of there, could be something behind there to leave a gap in the top, just enough to let fluid leak by. Hope this helps.
