    Since Toyota Fittings are 10mm x 1.00 thread with an inverted flare, is this the same as a D60? I have some 40" long brakelines on my K5 that I am parting out and want to keep them if they will work on my Yota.

    Ok, nobody answered... so let me rephrase it. I have a K5 Blazer with a Dana 60 in the front that I am parting out. It has LONG brakelines. What are the sizes on a Dana60 front brakeline??????

    I don't know about a D60, but everything I have ever seen on a chevy is NPT.

    The GM Inverted Flare threads are most likely fractional sizes and not Metric. You can test this with a couple fine thread bolts. 3/16" brake plumbing uses either a 7/16" fine or a 3/8" fine bolt thread. 1/4" brake plumbing usually uses the 7/16" fine bolt thread.

    Are these ready-made hoses or fabricated hoses?
    If they're fabricated you can just order new adapters, but ready-mades mean you either need to convert the yoter's plumbing or get new hoses.
