Are the bolts on the MC cap frozen? That's the usual source o' the problem. Try dousing the bolts in PB Blaster - best solvent around for long-term rust and stuff. Then address the bolts with an impact driver - you'll have to replace those bolts, but that's cheaper than replacing the MC itself. Usually once you get under the cover, the clean-up is just a matter of patience.

Here's what the piston looks like once it's out of the housing. It's been awhile since I extracted this one and I don't have an empty housing to try reinstalling, but does this help you at all? If not, I'll see what kind of mess I can make out in the garage (I'm not sure this is what they thought when I said I'd be working at home today! lol)
