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
