Re: Brake Line leak

first of do not use feral couplings to patch brake lines, this is actually illigal. the amount of preasure in a power brake system can exceed 1000-3000 psi at the cylinders and those feral couplings can come off. if you do a coupling you must use flares and proper fittings. second the farthest wheel from the master cylinder isnt always the right rear, mine its the left rear that has the longest distanst from the master cylinders. Third if you are having trouble getting a wrench on it try a rachet and socket, you dont have to make bleeders that tight to keep them from leaking you make them tight to keeep them from comeing loose. so you dont have to crank down on them inbetween pumpings. And if a rachet dosnt work take a reagular wreanch or an extra long one and heat it up with a tourch and bend it cut it to do what you want then hang it on the wall and watch people look in amesment at this wierd wrench you have

Re: Brake Line leak

Holy old thread, Batman! And I'm with you on the left rear being the furthest away (at least on my beloved Toyota), but that is not normally the case.
