I believe the recommendation of others on the board here is to use Castrol GT brake fluid. It is still available at some auto parts stores and online. I purchased a can at a local shop here and some online from Moss Motors a while back.

The newer brake fluids have something in them that doesn't play well with the older systems. I think it is silicone. If I'm wrong someone will correct me. I've always used the Castrol so haven't tried any other brand.

Make sure you give the brake lines front and rear a good looking at. If they haven't been changed it would be worth it to consider changing them also.
