Re: Hydraulic clutch fluid???
If it were me, I'd put DOT 5 silicone in the clutch now, and convert the brakes next time a cylinder needed attention. The rebuild kits are cheap, and silicone is terrific. Heck, I bet you could get all the brake cylinder kits for under $50, and do it now.
And I just talked with my "go to" parts guy. He said that he's had several customers convert to silicone by draining the system for several hours, then refilling and bleeding generously with silicone. No problem.
