    Synthetic DOT 4.

    Valvoline makes it, should be able to pick it up at your local auto store

    Ive heard lots of good things about the Royal Purple Syncromax.


    ( the title says Clutch fluid, but your post says brake fluid)

    It is the same.
    The clutch hydraulics use brake fluid.

    RP synchromax is transmission fluid.

    The clutch system takes brake fluid.

    Just figured I'd try to clear that up

    I missed that. Thanks.

    Not looking to replace the tranny fluid...
    I do need to rebleed the clutch hydraulics though.

    Brake fluid DOT 4 synthetic looks like the ticket.

    Thanks guys!!!
