    Excellent.....full circle....the point....keep your brake circuit clean and keep the problems to a minimum! (just alittle side bar....It is always a good idea that when removing some type of reservoir cap...ps/pb/rad/wiper...wipe the cap and area clean 1st)

        ANYHOW (LOL), yesterday I completely rebuilt the front end. Other than the 3 hours it took to get the right axle nut off, after that everything went together like you see it on "Two Guys Garage" I had two hubs sent down to the states to a forum member "kzbill" , and he rebuilt them for me and pressed in new bearings seals and rotors, and I have to say he did an excellent job and if anyone needs hubs re-done, it doesn't get much better quality than his work, (thanks bill)I also installed two new NAPA lower control arms, two new chassis sway bushings, and two new NAPA axles, I used Lucas 'red n tacky' grease as an assembly lube on everything to prevent corrosion and lube the bushings, that's stuff is REALLY tacky, it was all over me at the end everything was also torqued upon installation anyhow I'M BACK, other than that little caliper leak (which is more of a gradual weep), shes back in business! I love my car

              Good for you....while Jim and I fought over the functionality of brake fluid...someone actually got something productive done.

                  Darn, missed the whole brake fluid argument!

                  I can solublize the water and oil with long chain alcohols.
                  Not economically viable for large amounts of water and oil but good for keeping water suspended in oil/glycol ester!

                  Just to keep things stirred up, I replace the fluid in my reservoirs once a year!
                  Be nice to flush the clean fluid through to the bleed screws but seldom have a second person to help.
                  And I'm not spending a small fortune for a "power" bleeder.
                  Besides this process has worked fine for the last 10 yrs!

                  Funky T,
                  Glad your back on the road!
                  Doesn't that front end feel so much better with all the new parts!
