Can anyone give me a suggestion on how to get the plastic nipple (that goes into the master cylinder) into the new hose that goes between the resevoir and the master cylinder, What a pain!

dip the male barbed end in brake fliud and insert into hose - or

into the rubber bushing on the master

I use a thick golden / clear colored grease on the outside of the fitting. The hardest part is keeping the hose from getting discolored from the sweat and oils from your hands!

(you can also use brake fluid) and force the hose onto the punch, then left it overnight. That expands the rubber enough so that with a little lubricant (silicone grease or brake flulid) it'll pop right onto the nipple.

Thansk for all the tips. I was able to get the nipple in with a combination of brake fluid and heat gun.

Too late but in addition to what others said, I stick a pair of needle nose pliers into the hole and open the handle to flex the hose a few times.
