    Default WTB-505 rear LHS solid brake line

    Hi folks,

    Advertisement


    Does anyone have one of the above in good nick (w/ no rust/joiner nuts in good condition)? Want to mail it to me for beer money and much gratitude?

    (I've sent at least 3 of these to the tip myself, so I'm hoping someone has one in their back yard...)

    (Give me a PM or email indogus at gmail dot com.)

    *bump* anyone? To clarify, I mean the line on the trailing arm that runs from the flexible brake hose to the calliper. I have one with a stripped joiner nut, and one that's rusty, and I don't really want to have to shell out to get a new one made up...

    Default brake line

    My humble opinion is to err on the side of safety. This is drawn from +30years of restoration/historic racing and rebuilds including SS sleeving.
    Any old replacement pipe is questionable.
    Ring around the brake service places both in C'berra and Q'yan as the fittings are metric its only the cost of the flareing and bending to fit.
    Take your samples for a guide.

    If its too costly send me a PM and I'll check with my brake supplier.

    (Arghh.. will this thing _ever_ be registered? )

    Phil - You're on!

    (And, FWIW if anyone reads this in the future, the cost of having a solid brake line made up was extremely minor - ten bucks or so - well worth it.) (The flexible hoses were a fair bit more, though! )
