Brake Lines MK1

Post by Benjamin1973! »

I need to replace the two brake lines that run alongside the fuel tank, probably the two sections from the front reservoirs as the L pieces are seized (I have the special spanner to no avail)

Firstly any tips even if the spanner fails to get off and...

The pipes are two different sizes. One is clearly a 5mm which I have bought replacement Kufner pipe for and about to have a go replacing. The other looks like 6mm or 7mm? does anyone know the exact size and where I can get replacement line and male/female adapters?

Go easy, I'm a novice having a go at brakes for the first time!

Cheers

Ben
