Ok, I went to Advance Auto. Got a 60" piece of brake line, tube cutter, bending tool, got home and jacked the car up. I spent an hour trying to inspect everything and basically scope things out. I couldn't even get the fitting off the original brake lines they were so rusted tight. I started to round it off and I stopped
I don't have any more PB but I don't think that will help anyway. I'm screwed now. Looks like I'll be blowing some money on having someone repair it. Which won't be for 2 more weeks...
BTW, this is the worst section possible to replace. The rear passenger side where all the crazy bends start at the side of the car and runs to the wheel. Everything'* pretty nasty and wet. At least a good 14" is horribly rusted. The 60" I have is probably 12" shorter than what I would need to fit from the original fitting points, since I'd have to bend it in many places. It would have been nice not to have to do any flaring.
I had one question though...the guy at Advance said I could use the brass compression unions to join lines. He said (and so did the packaging) that it shouldn't be used on brake lines, but that it works. They didn't have my size anyway. Would this union be ok to use??
