Default 1968 Mustang power steering fluid - I screw-up

Hi Guys,
Not sure if this is a major thing or Iím overreacting. I just finished rebuilding my entire front end, power steering and added power brakes. While adding trans fluid to my new power steering pump I mistakenly grabbed the brake fluid and somehow managed to pour about a table spoon full of brake fluid before I notice. My question, should I drain the whole thing or leave it, itís probably about 1% or less I think.
Any advised would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Rick

Get it out of there. Brake fluid will destroy the seals and O rings. If it is just in the pump, drain it out, and flush it out with the right fluid a little bit. After that you should be ok.
