1964 Cloud Brake Fluid
OK I have never even taken a wheel nut off a cloud just done various electrical work. So no mechanical experience on this model
My friend has just phoned saying he has no brake fluid in his reservoir. No signs off fluid loss on his garage floor either so I assume must have lost it when driving.
I am going to look it over at the weekend but thought I better go armed with some brake fluid.
I just checked and it says Girling/Castrol crimson as hard to get as RR363. However reading up it says this also was changed from crimson to RR363 later.
Question is does a cloud really need RR363 as the Shadow does, or will DOT3/4 be OK as I did not think these cars had the brake pumps and levelling system. No need to put expensive RR363 in if not needed surely.
Advice/help/info please greatly appreciated
