[DML] Re: stiff clutch???

On some bottles of Silicone fluid I've seen words to the effect "Not 
for use use in clutch systems". 

Silicone fluid is more compressible than normal brake fluid. Not a 
big deal in a brake system but with the tiny volumes being moved in 
the clutch system it may put you right back where you were with the 
plastic clutch line, i.e. tearing up second and third gear.  

I don't see how different fluid is going to make the clutch action 
easier. That's not where the friction is, it's mechanical, either in 
the throwout bearing sliding on the tube or in the pressure plate 
assembly itself.
