this is in reply to multi quoting on page 1 by spiralout
I write things thinking ahead- geared towards other relatively noobs/new to Wing who will find these threads while researching their own problem in the future. Gurus and skilled persons may skip the basic info that they should already know~
Are we not here to help each other- learn from each other?
The Dot3/4 info is because I have seen that very question posed several ways- and Im also on a mission to get everyone on a brake fluid flush
At least every 2 years, every year is better! Do the clutch while you are at it.
Hence suggestion to ck brake master rubber condition ( it may be gone or damaged) and flush the system while you are there.
NOTE Once you open the foil seal on brake fluid bottle- it goes bad after 6 months on the shelf from the dreaded hygroscopic action...
So use up the contents of the bottle by doing all your vehicles! c'mon you're already dirty
The missing rubber = my 86 Shadow clutch res -the fluid hadnt been changed in a decade or more, and the rubber was stretched, sunken and discolored!
No surprise the slave cyl was destroyed from scarring and pitting in the bore.
That is when I learned about burping the banjo
The brake master needed a new one as well- good thing I ckd!
I hope this clears up any confusion for spiralout- and allows everyone to enjoy my post for the info/entertainment they are meant to be.
Im trying- IMO that beats a lot of post that just pick on other post~
Please Be kind- this IS my social life!
