Slow leak at clutch reservoir

My 73 GTV has a new clutch MC but I reused the old reservoir. I believe the flared tube that runs thru the large nut has sheared or is otherwise leaking. I'm pretty sure the fix is a new res which appears to be supplied with the nut assembly. Is that right? Is there a generic replacement? I love and have ordered many millions of dollars from CA but I just ordered last week and would love to grab this off amazon etc.

Thanks for posting the results of your research. I assume you are referring to: https://www.amazon.com/98-6020-BRAKE...a-607034406671

Does the cap from your old reservoir fit the EMPI?

It was this and the answer is sorta. Old cap threads but doesn’t want to snug.

Note that the sealing ring is sold separately and it takes a 28mm wrench, which must be thin. Ended up using the knipex.
