LT1 Brake Leak

Just finished putting the car back together last weekend and started putting some miles on it. Everything seemed ok except Monday my LOW TRAC light started rapidly flashing accompanied by the ABS INOP light. Popped the hood and noticed the bottom of the ABS block is wet with brake fluid and pools up on the sway bar bracket below. Master Cylinder lost fluid. Never had any issues prior to the engine removal.

Car is a 97 Camaro with no TCS. Upgraded brakes last summer to LS1 style both front and rear. Only disconnected front two brake lines from the ABS block for about a month, bolted back in place with no signs of leaking. Bled brakes like normal.

This guy had a similar leak:

I'd prefer to keep ABS if I can figure out where it's leaking from. Anyone have an issue like this or know any suspect areas (bleeder or something)? Rained last night so didn't get any pictures, will try to get some tonight.

Clean it off, fill the master, pump the brakes.
