[ROVERNET - UK] Leaky bits some where...

Hi All,

I have rebuilt the servos on my '68 2000 TC so now (according to the invoice 
of work providied to the last owner) everything on the system has been 
rebuilt or replaced on the brake system in the last 12 months.

My problem is that I still have some air getting into the front circuit. My 
first guess is that my call on the condition of the front servo cylinder 
walls was wrong and I need to get them resleeved.

My question is this: does someone have any advice for tracking leaks in the 
brake system when there isn't an obvious leak of fluid? (Admitedly some 
parts are still pretty grubby).

Some more background:

The problem was that the brakes had air getting into them after about two 
months- bleed the system and the air is in the front circuit. The bubbles 
are super fine- the fluid looks like vanilla milkshake (Although not as 
tasty). After the rebuild I think I'm getting the same leak, but more so. I 
will take the servo off to check fluid has got into the vacuum canister, but 
I'm not convinced that this is the answer.

Any help would be welcome.
