    I don't really know what those escorts are like but i do know clutches and are you sure the brake master cylinder is what controls both? i've never heard or seen of that and it doesn't make too much sense to me. but if it is then u need to check all your lines and the connections. maybe a rubber link between 2 metal lines. throw a piece of cardboard under your car and just sit there and press the clutch in repeatedly and see if it leaks and it'll give you a general idea of where the leak is comming from. otherwise if it is the brake master cylinder that works the clutch too then you should get that checked out too.

    they can be a real pain to bleed aswell make sure u have all the air out of the system. But u say your losing pressure what do u mean pedal pressure. You may have a weak pressure plate the fingers are weak. Does the pedal have lots of play?
