Why are these brake lines such B*tch to get off? They don't screw in counter-clockwise do they?
I busted my rear line up at the body trying to get that one off, with the correct tools none the less. Even worse, the brake flaring tool doesn't work on my lines for some unknown reason, @#$@#% brakes! At least the front went in well durring the swap!
wont flare right huh ? try vise grips on the part that holds the tubing . /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
Hey, sounds like you've tried that before... ok, I will!
I'm doin that on the old tearin it apart but it still ain't comin loose!!!
HAHA YEAH , but not on my truck ! it was a customers f150 prerunner ! doh ! yeah i got it to work tho , it wasnt holding it tight enuff .
Mine was so bad, I had to cut the line and buy a new fitting! Hence the flaring problem, smae thing happened on the front right but I replaced the whole tube from the proportioning valve to the right wheel frame mount.
I think I'm headin in the direction of cuttin and replacin too, oh well I was wonderin what I was goin to do with the extra day this weekend.......
can you put antisieze compound on the fittings so that they will be removeable next time?
