About Brake lines : I suspect that the salt truck department here is in
collusion with a salt mine. So we have problems with rusty steel lines galore.
Relax cheer up it is a piece of cake to install new lines.
Being a fanatic DIY no way was that one going to slip me by.
A double flare tool can be converted to do Bubble flares like nothing.
All you have to buy is the die. ----I have a lathe and could have made one --but
hell for 7 dollars ? no way.
Get a roll of line some fittings ------ even here in the sticks everything was cheap.
Warning do not mistake American fittings with metric stuff. I was sold the wrong
stuff --and now I have to take a few lines off again. ---NO sweat ---she is still
on the road . The thread feels sloppy ? you got USA stuff.
PS: Looks to me like the metric nuts are longer than USA version.
Look up Val Christian procedures for undoing stuck nuts and bleed-screws.
My experience was totally happy and a lot of fun. After Val straightened me
out. Why did I get the wrong nuts ? I handed the counter person a brand
new brake-cylinder. --Counter intelligence at work.
