61 Panhead rear master cyl leak

I replaced the gasket on the cap of the rear master cylinder, topped it off with fluid and now brake fluid is squirting out of the small vent hole in the cap. I took some fluid out but still shooting fluid. Any ideas?

Most likely the rubber floppy is torn somewhere & cant be seen!--Or it has a pin-hole in it!---When putting cover back on make sure its not warped! & all old gasket is removed!--If you are trying to seal to a chrome-lip, Thats a bitch also!---Richie 8)

Rubber floppy? Didn't see a rubber floppy. Makes sense tho..It is a chrome master cylinder.
