clutch line

Has anyone used the Classic Tubing stainless clutch line? My line is leaking and I need to replace it. Do they have stainless fittings? Any other places to get them other than ECR?

Since I have gotten rid of most of the rust on the truck I am seriosly thinking of changing her name from Tetanus to Depends, because she leaks so much.

If this is the right thing, you can buy it direct

Classic Tube clutch line

From their FAQ:
9. Do stainless steel tubes come with stainless steel fittings?
In almost all cases we use stainless steel fittings, in some rare cases like transmission and carb lines the stainless steel fittings are an option.

OTOH, the OEM part lasts quite along time, and even in the US it's pretty cheap.

I had one made locally. I removed the two rigid lines and had a flexible line made to run from the MC to SC.

Stainless and Birmabright don't play well together, so I'd be a little concerned about stainless fittings screwed in to Aluminum master and slave, especially with the already corrosive nature brake fluid.

A little never-seize or ECK on the threads and you'll never have an issue with that fitting.

Classic Tube does sell all the products directly, same pricing. Down side is lead time and seeing if they made it right the first time.

Yeah, I've always used Never-Seez on them, but a lot of people don't, for one reason or another.
