    Need help getting the rear brake line fittings off my 79 so I can get the new extended Pro Comp line on. Any help would be appreciated....what a PITA.

    Thanks

    I can't break the block free from the lines nor the top fitting off the bracket above the gas tank. I have used wd40 on all of them just wainting for advice now.

    I usually end up using adjustable pliers on them as they are so soft and tend to strip with a wrench. You might try penetrating oil to as it would work better than WD40. Good luck!
