Brake pipe blowout

FYI, just a caution that folks should inspect their brake piping as well as those pesky oil cooler lines. I was on MaBell in the snowstorm on New Years Day when I had a hard line let go between the master and the junction block (an inch above the junction). I was leaning on the brakes while winching my buddy's Rubicon when I felt the peddle sink. The truck was redone by ECR in 1996 when it was convererted to a coiler, so these were not 35 year old lines. New England rust strikes again. You can see why ECR uses SS these days.

Pretty.

Can you post the bleed order on the RRC front calipers again Matt?

Follow-up Post:

Never mind, found it in RAVE. Still like that bulkhead, nice galvy work that shop does.

I can indeed dip the master cylinder and do so at as often as possible.

Made me a new line and I had it in the mail the next day. Great stuff, hand bendable, rustproof, etc. The line I had to replace snaked it's was from the master back to the bulkhead, across to the other side and down to the junction block. With this stuff I had it installed in 10 minutes with no disassembly of components in the way, and absolute pleasure to work with.

I would suppose the "cunifer" product to be similar to the Automec product that is widely used in other parts of the planet.....and available at Rovers Down South.

Much preferable to SS . I use all the stainless on Defenders as it is widely requested by customers due in part I'm sure to it being shiney.
