brake line fitting

Busted the line at the fitting on the rear passenger side today. I can't get the fitting off, it seems really soft on both ends. Box wrench and socket wanted to round the edges with the slightest amount of torque. Special tool of tricks?

Orielly didn't know the diameter of.the line either. My chiltons didn't have specs that I seen. I assumed its 3/16.

Not true. Done it a couple times.

Um, what is not true?

The only statement of fact in there is that they are precisely measured and crafted. If you are so much as 1/16th of an inch off on making your own brake lines, your brake balance will be off, period, guaranteed, end of story.

You also said you have done it a couple times, which was the qualifier in my statement that if you hadn't, you probably shouldn't.

I'd be willing to bet this is a farm truck. I dont think the length matters. The flare tool is a die that makes accurate flares. I think MO is experienced enough with tools to not **** it up. I see where you are coming from and given the fact that i am just a shade tree mechanic you could be right but brake lines are a common fix. Especially on the drums. I think rear brakes supply around 20% of the braking power.

I am an ASE certified mechanic, brake lines are not a common fix, and I assure you that they are length specific on every application with any form of pressurized fluid braking system.

Maybe so but... I'm no mechanic and I've cut out a few brake lines and used those fittings to splice in a new section. This was just for small cars though, but it worked fine.

I have fixed probably over five hundred brake lines, I can guarantee a sixteenth of an inch on an eight foot section of isn't hurting a thing.

I'm not saying you can't use the fittings, I'm saying don't do it if you don't know what you are doing. If you know what you are doing, by all means, have at it.

Wow, a whole 500 brake lines? You must be the best in the business.

Tell me, oh great one, what happens when one brake line is shorter than the other?

Have you ever even worked for a dealership and gone through any form of training? Or are you one of those shadetree "I have a garage" types who opened up a "shop" to run a sidejob repair business out of?
