Probably wishful thinking on my part but after driving it around a bit it seems the new MC has helped with the feel, but the boost is only there on hard braking.
The vacuum leaks out so quickly, progressive braking (normal driving) is still not good. I thought the servo was only leaking through the front seal but I think it is generally shot, looking inside there is no obvious large ingression of fluid, but it does look 'damp'. My thoughts are that at some point the bad output shaft seal has created a vacuum between the servo and an old MC, and sucked brake fluid into it.
I've now removed the servo and pedal box and will use the opportunity to clean up and paint the box & bulkhead area before I get a new (old but good) servo this Saturday.....
