Re: [DML] Re: Brake Fluid Leak

I can understand having the problem with a 20 year old part but this  
is only a couple years old. The original one leaked really bad and I  
went over the front half of the frame in POR-15. This time it just  
leaked a very small amount so I think the frame will be ok. Like I  
said before it seems to have stopped for now but I will have to see  
what it does when it gets cold.
