I'm doing drum to disc conversion and replacing rear wheel cylinders too. I have a gallon can of brake fluid I've had for years. Can I use it or should I buy new? How much will be needed for full system?

If it's still in a sealed can, it should be fine. If the can has been opened, I wouldn't take a chance on it, as cheap as brake fluid is. A gallon should be more than enough.

Brake fluid should last forever if you dont let moisture get to it.

Buy a new can, after all, it is your brakes and you don't want to take chances and fluid is cheap.

If you have no fear, you're not going as fast as you could.
