Brake line question?

Post by wpgneon » Fri Jul 23, 2010 12:05 pm

Will 12feet of brake line be enough to reach master cylinder to rear passanger drum

Why don't you just go to the dealer and buy it. They come pre-bent and ready to go. Don't cost too much either.

It's less than 20 bucks for both lines that go to the rear. It will cost you more, take longer and you are opening up new areas for it to leak and cause problems if do it this way.

Fuck the dealership , well for canadian anyways. They never have shit in stock like the states.

PISTON RING AUTO PARTS EXT
cost 20$ for fittings
25$ for piping

45$ canadian to complete a full line from front to back using

1-6' line
1-6' line
1-2' line
+ connecters

Tube fitting==-=
3/8 ( or 7/16?) thread (rear left of master cylinder)
5/16 thread ( normal size of connects to back of drum and pretty much the rest of all the break lines are this size ( THREAD SIZE )

at the shops here they dont even go by the size so it TOOK 3 days to figure it all out and get the right connects. but its all DONE! new brake lines work awesome

Why?......

First off, not many dealerships will stock parts for cars over 10 years old. If they did, they would most likely end up sitting on them for years, and then end up throwing them out during inventory.

Second, due to the brake line recall on the 95's, you could of spent $10 or so for each rear metal line. The non-abs cars are dirt cheap for lines. Only would of took a day or two for them to show up.

So now, you have two possible leak points now by splicing three pieces together. I've did something like this before with compression fittings, but wouldn't call it a great repair.

And was the aggravation worth it? Three days trying to find the right size lines and bending them to fit.

Dunno, but it's your car and money so whatever.....
