In all likelihood, those are nylaflow lines. If they are 1/4", you'll be doing
yourself a favor by changing them out for 3/16", or even 1/8" lines. I've run
across crapped up brakes where the Mil-5606-H had separated and turned to muck
a few times. I remove the pucks from the slave cylinders and clean and dry
them thoroughly. Remove the O rings from the pucks and clean the grooves in
the pucks and clean the O-rings as well if you intend to re-use them. I prefer
to replace the O-rings. Also inspect the walls of the slave cylinders for
pitting. If pitted, you can work them over with some emory or crocus cloth.
Just make sure the scratches are radial around the bores. Pump the master
cylinders until nothing comes out. You can add some more 5606 to the master
cylinder reservoirs and pump it through if you think you need to. Reassemble
and fill the brakes again from the bottom up.

Subject: KR> Tips for Flushing Brake Lines?
I'm working on something that's been sitting too long. The red hydraulic
fluid in the lines and in the calipers has gelled. I haven't gotten into the
brake cylinders yet but that's coming.
Does anyone have suggestions for flushing the goo out of the flexible
plastic lines? Sorry I don't know what type of clear plastic they are made
