Difficulty shifting gears

Having difficulty shifting gears of my 95' D90. Checked the clutch fluid and it was lower than normal. Filled it up and was able to shift. Suspecting my clutch master cylinder might be going. Any thoughts? Anybody know of a good Defender mechanic in central New Jersey or Philadelphia? I don't have enough time to fix it myself right now.

Normally it is the slave cylinder that leaks. Have a look for fluid at the bellhousing drain.

Mine is leaking from the master cylinder, dripping down the clutch pedal. But its a really slow leak, so I just keep some brake fluid with me and top it off when it starts getting clunky to shift. Maybe in the spring I'll just replace both cylinders. But I'm in no rush, it's been leaking for I think 2 years now.

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.
