ef brake lines??

for the ef gents who've fabricated their brake lines..

my front passenger line running from the flex hose to the assisting slave cylinder(not sure if thats what its called) but to explain..it doesnt run to the other lines..it is soley the steel line running from the brake to the cylinder around the passenger strut tower..

i was wondering if anyone knew the required proper length for the line, the size of the line as well and the flare (not sure if im saying this right)

but basically i need everything to fabricate these on my driveway =D

thanks in advance...

Take a piece of string and loop it around your old line to determine the length.

A 1/2-inch countersink drill bit is used to quickly clean up the inner edge of the tubing.



Here's how a standard 45-degree double or inverted flaring tool works. Unless you're using stainless lines and A/N fittings throughout, this has been the standard since the '30s. First, make sure the fitting you're using is already in place on the line. Then the tubing is secured in the bar with the section of tubing protruding equal to the height of the die you're about to use.



With the die inserted into the tubing, the screw cone is compressed until the die is flush with the tubing bar.



The die was removed, and the screw cone was screwed directly onto the top of the tubing.



With the correct flare of one end of our line, we proceeded to the bends. To maintain the proper length, always work from one end of the line to the other. As you work, try to visualize the fact that with every flare and bend, you're pulling the line in slightly. This is how people get into trouble and miss their mark.

Check your Haynes Manual for correct flare.
