You aint got the 'merch!!!
& where's that unlike button???
I still can't manage my ADD worth a crap. But between doing miscellaneous stuff I finally bent my last brake line.
Decided to do a quick write up on the AN stainless line. If anyone cares how I did it.
Cut the line.
And deburr it. Get yourself a 37 degree counter sink.
You need to slip on your tube nut and ferrule.
And get yourself a good quality 37 degree flaring tool.
After I looked around everyone says the ridged was the way to go. It has a automatic brake way so you can't overtighten.
You want to recess the tube slightly. I learned through trial and error.
I like to use lots of water displacement on the 40th try when I am tightening the flare tool down.
Once your done the fitting will look like this.
Then you can bend your lines cut to fit and flare the other end.
And your set.
Last line on. (Middle line)
Tomorrow night I have to take all my lines off and clean them with brake clean. Then I'll tighten everything down and start bleeding.
I was wondering how you did lines like that.
I found the line is less likely to crack the deeper I let the countersink dig.
Oil helps alot.
I like the tube nut as it seems like they are less likely to strip with an open end.
Put the ferrule on the right way dummy!
( no pictures of that)
You have to have stainless tube to use this.
Think that's it.....
Burning the midnight oil.
I know the feeling
Lately my every day
Seems like a growing trend ... 3 steps forward, 4 steps back
Wear a helmet
I find those days tend to go better when I abandon the project and take the kids for ice cream and french fries.... in another town...
