Re: Brake bleeding/changing 87 CGT

There will be very little mixing of the fluid when you flush it.

Don't drain it, you'll have a devil of a time getting all the air out,
especially if you have ABS.

On my new '88 5kcstq, and did two rounds of flushing:

Master Cylinder is near LF (Left Front), so I did RR until the fluid changed
from old to new, then, LR, RF, LF, then RR, LR, RF, LF, and RR.  The first
round I did until the fluid changed color at each location, the second round
I did 5-10 brake pedal to the floor rounds.  Keep the reservoir from going
empty, but drain it as much as you dare the first few times before you top
it off with new DOT 4 brake fluid.  Do not use DOT 5!!!

Let me know if you need more info.
