Rear brake line

Anyone have a left rear brake line off of a Salisbury axle? At the very least I just need the fitting off of it as mine is stripped. Can be a brake line off of a 90 as well. I have 90 rear calipers on the axle and ultimately just need the fitting that screws into the caliper.

Thanks

Tyler

Great place to get fittings & line…. Fedhill brake line - Where to buy brake line, fuel line, brake line flaring tools, brake line nuts and brake line fittings
I may have a spare fitting in my kit if you don't want to order from Federal.

Back to the top -- Fedhill looks like a great resource, but does anyone know the specific tools, line and nut size I would need for the front rigid lines on a non-abs rrc?

Thanks

3/16'' line, M10x1 fittings.... You're talking about the hard lines at the caliper right? IIRC those lines use a bubble flare on the male end & a double on the female end. I used lines from Napa with bubble flares, cut one end & double flared the cut end.

I bought one of these years ago:
Professional Brake Pipe Flaring Tool

Use it with this type of line:

Thanks, this is for one of the two lines going from the MC to the left front caliper.

Those are 10x1... one male & one female. You could probably reuse your fittings.

Excellent, thanks. Is there a usable bubble flare (that's the right flare, right?) tool for use a handful of times?

Fedhill has a rental that looks very similar to Rob's. But for one line I'd do what I suggested above and the loaner flaring tool from AutoZone worked fine for a double flare needed on the female end.

Or you could invest now in a tool and do all your lines before one springs a leak.

I have a bench tool, but I've been thinking of getting one of these to keep in my tool box.
Automotive Bubble Flare Kit No. 155 | VehicleServicePros.com

Looks like they run about $20
