	Probably completely irrelevant, but when I bought my '85 5000ST,
	there was all sorts of black crud floating around inside the
	brake-fluid reservoir.  I later discovered that the grommets
	underneath were completely rotten, and fluid was seeping out
	through them.  I put in new grommets (~$3.00), cleaned out the
	reservoir and replenished the fluid, and the system's been fine
	ever since.
