Splice in steel/hard brake line. Source for fittings/tubing

Splice in steel/hard brake line. Source for fittings/tubing. Need to splice in section to replace part of steel line near flex hose to center fitting over the diff. Tubing rusted out.

Need to get brakes operational to test a/c before dismantling the car for parts. Drive line goes from '76 into my '73.

Driveway much too steep to control on and off the tow dolly. Need to get it to the A/C shop to see if condenser, and more important, evaporator are good.

'76 parts car has a hard line splice now near one caliper.

Are you really talking about brake lines, Bill?

I wouldn't be comfortable with flexible fuel line spliced into the brake circuit.

Cheers,

tubing with hose clamps.

That is how BMW completed the run on the tiis from the hard line to the fuel pump.

Stop reading this! Don't you have anything better to do?? :P
Two running things. Two broken things.

I would just replace the whole run.

Getting a good flare onto existing tubing is not easy,

and replacement lines are cheap.

and available at many auto parts stores.

I used a compression fitting to join 2 lines (the brake line "kit" that I bought for my tii did not have the longer tii line for the rear so I spliced in a short section just before the "T." No problems in over 40,000km.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
