brake fluid, past and present
« on: September 28, 2018, 11:54:37 AM »
I recall that in ages past one could get into serious trouble if using the wrong brake fluid.  Seals would dissolve and brakes and the clutch would fail.  The name Girling comes to mind as the approved fluid to use.

Has the situation changed within the past 30+ years?  Assuming new piston seals, what special requirements are there for brake fluid?

Thanks
