An poorly designed self adjusting automotive hydraulic clutch using regular brake fluid fails regularly. A test with a heavier viscosity fluid (Dextron ATF) solved all of the operational problems, but the chemical makeup attacked the rubber parts in the system. Looking for a fluid that will be heavier (like ATF) but will not attack rubber parts. High temperature resistance is not a requirement like when used in a braking system. To be used in a 15 year old automobile. There are still thousands of these cars on the road. Most of which have the same problem. This is very important to me, and I ask you to take my request seriously. Thank you, George Mudd Dec6, 2000
