Hi all, I need a good brake fluid that will not boil to easy for my clutch. On long drives I seem to get a little air in the line if it a real hot day or 4 to 6 hour ride. Master and slave + metal an

I've never seen brake fluid overheat in the clutch circuit. The brakes generate a helluva lot of heat that can get passed directly into the brake fluid. But the clutch linkage just doesn't get that h

Air in the clutch circuit can be a bad (or failing) seal at either end... but more likely the master. When you take your foot off the pedal, the seal's allowing a little air to draw into the circuit.

This might start a firestorm but here goes. Having just spent a fortune on new front brake cylinders I am contemplating the use of silicone (D.O.T. 5) brake fluid. I'm told that it has a softer feel

Silicone should only be used on completely new brake systems from the getgo. I wouldn't use it with older parts as the rubber softeners and swell agents are different. Mike /// /// datsun-roadsters@

Been using silicone brake fluid for about 12 years really like it. Brakes get a bit soft in the mountains so I downshift more. Also have it in the clutch system. Flatlands of the Texas coastal plains

This sounds really great since Dot 3 and Dot 4 fluids still absorb water which then causes corrosion problems with the brake cylinders etc. But, a friend at work replaced the fluid in his vehicle (19
