It bothers me that you would attempt to do a "major (brake) overhaul", but have no idea of the kind of brake fluid to use, and wouldn't think to ask for such information at your local Ford dealership/repair shop or auto parts retailer (many of the latter have online searches for parts and supplies, including fluids). If you can't figure out the simplest thing, maybe you shouldn't do anything more complicated. Regardless, the correct brake fluid for that year, make, and model, is DOT-3.
