    Is a rubber o-ring OK with brake fluid

    I am replacing my clutch master and slave cylinder. Somehow I lost the o-ring for the master where the braided line connects. Will a regular rubber o-ring work as a replacement or do I need one made of some other material?

    regular O-rings are good for sealing against water.

    get an automotive O-ring for gas/oil/hydraulic fluid sealing.

    hydraulic fluid is very aggressive and can eat through anything
