944 leaking fluid from slave cylinder

My '83 944 finally left me stranded with a transmission problem. When I pulled off the road, the clutch was spongy and I was unable to shift into gear and it feels like there is something physically blocking it. After sitting for a bit, the clutch actually begin sticking in a depressed position once it was pushed a little more than halfway down. While looking under the car, I noticed a leak of some type of fluid from where the starter meets the clutch housing.

I have a 1985/2 944 that sat for years.  When I purchased it 2 months ago,  the car did not run.  The clutch pedal and clutch seemed to operate as expected.  I have rebuilt the calibers etc.

I have owned my 1983 944 since new. It has only 45000 original miles. My question is, if the clutch is performing well, should I leave it alone or should it be rebuilt due to it's age?Thanks

I am trying to replace the ignition system in my 944 Porsche. I have the ignition assembly apart. I was wondering if there is a diagram, or description, as to how to take out & reinstall the entire lock/tumbler system. I have a replacement one that I got from a scrap yard, but I am uncertain as to how it is replaced properly. Any advice please?

drive shaft keeps slipping out of place inside transmission?

Model: 944, Year:1983, Mileage:84000, Type of use:Street use only
I recently picked up an 83' 944 (not turbo) and the transmission keeps giving me problems. The drive shaft wont stay aligned inside the transmission. The car drives great when running, but once this problem happens it won't go into gear and makes a loud squealing/grinding sound when i do go into gear. this has happened 3 times this summer so i know how to fix it so it holds, just wondering if anyone else is having the same problem and has a solid solution that will last a while.thanks
