Thanks Jeff & Jerry.
I disconnected the lines, pumped fresh 5606 through and they ran clean much 
more quickly than I would have guessed.
I popped out the caliper pistons, washed all those parts, lubed it all with 
5606 and installed new O-rings.
Then I flushed the brake cylinders with more 5606, reassembled everything and 
it looks good to go!
Thanks again for the tips.

... 5606 hydraulic fluid is petroleum based... Definitely avoid Methyl Ethyl 
Ketones (MEK) and anything like lacquer thinner as they break down plastics
