Seperate clutch fluid reservoir

Bringing up this old thread, anyone know what size hose plug and hose cap I would need to cap off the stock res?

Seemingly I lost my clutch master cylinder yesterday at chuckwalla, had the car towed to my parents place in Palm Springs as it’s way closer then San Diego.... anyways, I plan to fit it in their garage with minimal tools, so just trying to have all the things I need BEFORE I fix the master and divorce the hydraulic systems.

Curious to find out as well. I'm about to order the separate reservoir and will need to plug up the other.

I just bought a new master cyl. reservoir, they are super cheap and already have that port plugged.
I think I paid about 12 bucks for a new one.

The thing to do is buy the brake reservoir for the automatic. It won’t have a nipple to feed the clutch. This is ‘safer’ than having a cap that can fail or come loose.

Anybody have the Dorman part# for the reservoir? Can't seem to find it on Dorman's website.

The 2005-08 one is still only $23 at rockauto, minus 5%, plus shipping. But they don't list one for a 2012.
