gotta know your nipples :mw:
But you can just try and see what's needed when you are under there.

Thanks- I was going shopping for one of those 5 sided? open end type wrenches for brake lines? Somebody said that they had nearly rounded off a nipple using a standard open end wrench while attempting to bleed the system. So I was going to go shopping for one of those "fancy" specialized tools. Might grab an 11mm while I'm at it for the brakes.
And is there an answer to the "what size tubing"? is right to fit on the nipples to take the old icky stuff away, far away, to the container of old yucky dot3 &4? I'm assuming the tubing is also different sizes between the clutch nipple and brake nipples. I hope these nipples are not pierced....enough potential for leakage already.

A 5/16 six point is about the best, or an 8 mm six point socket.
