Re: Damn hydraulic fluid reservoir!

Is the inside surface of your reservoir clean, Dan? I have had no problems
seeing the level in either my '86 5ktq or my '91 200q. The reservoir gets
gunked up inside if the fluid is not changed and the reservoir cleaned. If I
recall correctly, the Bentley recommends taking the opportunity to clean the
reservoir as part of the bomb replacement.
