Hard Brake line nut question

5 posts / 519 viewsLast Reply

Recommended Posts

I need to replace my hard brake line and was wondering if you can help me identify the size and flaring of my line. In doing some research about it, I have found that the line is 3/16 and there are two types of flaring - double or bubble. I don't know how to tell the difference without taking line out or in what years it varied. Is there any way to tell by this picture? Thanks

......well the only wrench you should attempt

to use is a flare-nut wrench - and

i'll let someone else in the class

give you the ins/outs of pipe-end flares

(hint) look in " Site Search " upper right

corner of this site - "brake line flare"

I will be doing this with a couple of people who know how to flare. We are going to be doing this on a sunday when the parts store is closed so I wanted to try to narrow down the specific information before I get to the garage so I can come with the proper parts. Thanks for the tip, I've been searching the forums instead of using the site search. Appreciate it.

Life learned lesson from my grandfather: "never plumb on a sunday"
