Part 58. Making brakelines

Since all the brake parts on the car are new we decided to go for new lines also. So, new piping all the way through:

brakeline_1
New lines, but they have no flaring or nuts yet.

toolset
Flaring tools – look complicated but actually very easy to use.

brakeline_2
First the end of the line is cleaned with the grinding tool.

brakeline_3
The line now has a clean and slightly rounded end.

brakeline_4
The line is inserted and clamped secure. Then the other lever is turned until the line end is fully formed.

brakeline_5
Line end now has  proper flaring.

brakeline_6
brakeline_7
The line attached to the brake force limitter.

ready
All done!
