US Spec '69 GTV Master Cylinder Problems

After installing rebuilt calipers, stainless hoses and new rotors, I attempted bleeding the brakes. I started getting good flow out the passenger rear, but then noticed a small puddle under the car. It was directly below the dual circuit master cylinder. It is leaking at the area of the plunger. Originality is paramount. This is a dual circuit system with standing pedals. Are there good rebuilders out there that can do the whole master cylinder rebuild (re-sleeve, etc)? I'm working full time and going to college full time so finding time to work on it myself is kinda hard. Recommendations? TIA.

Hey Dale I was reading through this forum and saw you thread with no replies yet. If you still are addressing this problem I would talk to Papajam....the 69 MC is his specialty and offers rebuilt units on an exchange basis.
