Thread: Break Fluid for my 58

    Break Fluid for my 58

    I need to flush out my break fluid and put new in. What type of break fluid should I use? I do not have a clue as to what is in there now. It almost looks like motor oil. It is dark in color. I am asuming I can use DOT3.

    Thanks Steve

    DOT3 is acceptable, but take the time to read the back of the label of the variety of products on the shelf. being that brake fluid absorbs water, buy the fluid that has the higher WET boiling point point.
