Temporary fix for a leaking slave clylinder??

Hi, I am wondering if anyone has any 'quick fix' remedy ideas to fix a leaking clutch slave cylinder in a YJ? Additives, etc. I just need to drive it for a couple of days until my part comes in. I have been adding fluid but it drains out within several hours or overnight. Any help greatly appreciated!!! It is a 2.5 liter with an AX-5 tranny. The slave is the internal kind connected to the throw out bearing.

That sucks, normally for fluid leaks you add an additive that frequently contains brake fluid because it swells rubber. since its leaking with brake fluid youre kinda SOL. "IF" it were me ide add trans fluid because atf is designed not to dry out rubber seals and its a little thicker...but thats me and ive been known to be a hack. also ide replace all the parts cause with age you get deposits in everything and flushing at this point will likely cause old seals to just deteriorate.
