Re: My brake fluid is CLEAR !!!!!!!

Brakes.......go slow, read. no great mystery. If you ever bled an old auto, you can do this.
aqny questions just ask the site and allow time for the "magic answer."
Valves........Taking out the cams is scary. No doubt about it. Best to be done with
someone who's done it before, but......slow and carefull can do it.........
Air cleaner..Once you take the tank off it's a snap. I just blow mine out with the
compressor if it's not too bad.
Plugs..........well, you know
