All were drained of old fluid, flushed with methylated spirits and bled on silicon.
5 years later no problems on brakes or clutches except for slightly heavier pedal.
No more corrosion or brake rebuilds!!

I am doing this having been informed by more than one person not to replace the glycol fluid with silicone without replacing the rubber seals.
Was this a complete waste of time?.
Well no not really. I had always thought that the brakes were pretty good for a 30+ year old car, (far better than the MG's that i had been used to) but on stripping down the rears i found that they were completely seized.
Only now can i start to begin to imagine how fantastic the driving experience is going to be.
