I would just get high temp red grease tube for the grease gun. They are only
around $5. As far as brake fluid I would use DOT 5.0 brake fluid. I went 20
years without rebuilding the brake and clutch master cylinders and wheel /
slave cylinders on my TR6. The only reason that I had to rebuild/ replace them
was due to adding DOT 5.1 brake fluid to the DOT 5.0 brake fluid. They do not
mix well and took some time to fail. I remembered DOT 5 something at the time
of the purchase of the DOT 5.1.
