Brake fitting store
« on: November 02, 2013, 02:07:53 PM »

Whats the best place to get loose brake line and fittings?

As you may or may not know the lines from the master cylinder to the proportioning valve on CJ's are a bit odd.  The 3/16" line has 1/4" fittings and the 1/4" line has 1/4" fitting on one side and a 3/8" fitting on the other.

This has totally confused both NAPA and O'Reiley...and frustrated me. 

So where do I get the parts to make these lines.  I do have and know how to use a flaring tool.

Thanks

Thanks Scott.  I don't need the whole set though, and was hoping to shell out closer to $20.

What about fast undercar? Might want to try a brake shop and see if they will sell you one out of their parts bin.

Tried Napa, all they had were adapters, not the correct fittings.

Maybe ordering line and the appropriate fittings from somewhere like Jegs, Summit, or Speedway?

classictube.com hooked me up. I also had a hose co. in Reno make custom lines for my RV hydraulic jacks. I'm sure you have hose shops over there.
