chetspencer is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Starting fresh with DOT5 brake\clutch fluid

As the title states I'm feeling like it's a good choice. I'd keep a new sealed bottle in the bottomless pit behind the seat for emergency top off's if I ever got a leak. Everything will be brand new. Am I missing something.

Chet; I don't see a problem with it! Other than the expense and it can be difficult to get the air out (easily agitated) may take several bleedings.
Good luck in your quest!

Thanks you guys for the feedback, I've got years the bleed the air out at the pace I'm going. I finally got the the Brake and clutch pedals to work like new. New MC and Clutch reservoir installed. I've got all new wheel and slave cylinders ready to go in next. Baby stepping this project to keep my ol' lady happy.
