    What brake fluid do I use?

    I understand that different brake companies' components recommend different fluids. But what fluid would I use if my front Triumph calipers are Girling, but my master cylinder (reliant) is a lockheed item?

    any well known make of dot 4 or dot 3 spec fluid will do, they are universal, its mineral based fluid that you cant use inless your cylinders have compatible rubber seals, but generally they were only used on machinery and old citroens and rollers...
