I would like to say a few words on behalf of silicone brake fluid.It is non-hygroscopic (does not absorb moisture).It does not damage paint as do glycol fluids.
A newly rebuilt and scrupulously clean brake system filled with silicone fluid should outlast a system filled with glycol fluid by several times.
The military specifies Silicone brake fluid for a reason.

The BN2 is at the point where it is time to fill and bleed the new brake system.  Now comes the time to decide whether to go with DOT 3/4 brake fluid or try silicone.  Any recommendations,  advice or warnings on this decision?Mike MacLean
