MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Brakes and Clutch fluid capacity
|Hi, I'm changing to Silicon fluid during rebuild so was wondering if anyone knows the total fluid capacity to the nearest 1/2 ltr for the standard brakes and clutch on a 73 midget? Thanks Si|
|Not sure of the exact quantity however it would be very small.|
The problem is how much will you effectively waste when flushing through and bleeding?
I would generally expect to use at least 1/2 a litre but would probably buy a litre bottle

|I just had to refill my system after replacing the master cylinders. I use a vacuum type bleeder so some fluid is lost in the process and it took just under one US quart of fluid to refill the system.|
|Thanks guys, I'll settle on 1ltr for now and see how it goes. Si|
