The Automotive Products advertisement in your October issue shows a photograph of Lockheed hydraulic brake and clutch reservoirs. This picture illustrates clearly my personal findings; that these containers are very difficult to keep clean because of the flat tops and deep rims which collect surplus fluid and dirt and because of the projecting cylinders that hamper wiping. The dirt is picked up by the cap as it is unscrewed and is liable to fall into the reservoir or to collect around its mouth.
I feel that the company should add to their “Servicing Revolution” and to safety by streamlining each assembly so that it is easy to keep them clean and free from grit, the menace of any such hydraulic system.
