Brake Line Installation

Mike is now working with the brake lines. He purchased a new brake flaring tool, 50 feet of stainless steel brake tubing, and stainless steel flared ends. These will be used to fix the front brake lines that have already been run, but currently leak, as well as for the rear brakes and clutch. He has found that the brake tubing is difficult to manipulate even with the flaring tool, so it’s still a work in progress.

Brake Lines and Fluid Hoses

Mike connected the brake/clutch cylinders to the triple reservoir tank with the new fluid lines. He also ran brake lines from the cylinders to the front brakes, but when he tested them out he found that there were leaks at the wheel ends. So, that will need to be addressed and tinkered with a little bit more.
