79avantiII Posted February 22, 2007 Report Share Posted February 22, 2007 Thought I might ask one more question about brake fluid. After fixing up the avanti, the rear driver wheel would lock up so I replaced the wheel cylinders as they were leaking. After doing this I bleed all the lines out but instead of using dot 5, I used dot 4. I don't like dot 5 becuase one its expensive and two bubbles seem to get in it so easy. I have read different opinions on this swap. One being its dangerous as the seals will deteriorate very quickly and cause brake failure to its fine as long as you flush out the line completly. Most of the postings though are of motorcycle conversions from dot 5 to dot 4. I still have the original bendix master on the car. I did the swap and it seems to work much better than before (easier pedal, less spongyness) but I don;t want to put myself in a dangerous situation.
