[DML] Re: Pulls to the right while braking

What happens is this;
the insides of the master cylinder corrode, especially at the extreme
end where you usually do not push the seals. When you bleed the system
you force the seals into that corroded area and tear up the seals. 
 The moral of this is that if you do not flush the brake system (and
the clutch on the manuals) every 2 years, or you find a car that has
been sitting for a long time, figure on just doing the whole brake
(and clutch) systems. Brake fluid has the charactoristic of absorbiing
moisture from the air. If you do not heat it up by using the car or
change it once in a while, it turns corrosive to the internal metal
parts of the system. What can anyone expect from 25 year old car parts?
