MG MGB Technical - Dot 4, Dot 5 or brake grease?

In the manuals, it says to use brake fluid to lubricate the seals in the master cylinder when undertaking a rebuild.
What if I don

Brake grease works fine. All you are doing is lubricating the rubber parts so the seals edges don't fold over or tear. Cheers - Dave

I think the original spec was Dot 2 but that was back in the sixties. Things have moved on since then. Dot 4 or 5 will be fine. 4 will be cheaper though
