Iâ??m helping a friend rebuild her brake system. All new lines and hoses. 
Iâ??ve rebuilt the calipers, brake cylinders and master cylinder and they are 
ready to install.
Hereâ??s the problem:
In rebuilding the cylinders I coated the bores lightly with red brake grease 
and DOT 3 
Fluid.  Now she tells me she may want to go with Silicone fluid.  Does that 
mean I need to disassemble and wash out all the cylinders and calipers?
Thanks for any answers.
