Re: [DML] DOT 5 fluid

I first started using DOT 5 brake fluid when I  rebuilt a 1970 MGB 1989 and 
have used it regularly on other cars I have  restored.(53 TD, 77 280 Z, 1960 
MGA. and now in a 1975 Bricklin.)  It is  non-corrosive and does not attract 
moisture.  When I took of the master  cylinder and brake proportioning valve they 
were badly pitted, gummed up  and full of all kinds of crap.  With DOT 5 that 
does not occur.   Another good point for DOT 5 is that it does not harm 
paint.  Almost every  car I have restored has had some serious rusting under neath 
the brake  master cylinder where DOT 3 has spilled.  I've never heard of a 
spongy  pedal because of using DOT 5..
I'll stay with DOT 5
