I need to replace the hardline for my front brakes from the master cylander to the proportioning valve. there is a really ugly mulltipiece length in there, obviously not origana and it's leaky so I want to replace that length. Does anyone know the length and fitting sizes I need for both ends? I want to have the new piece before I pull out what's in there to save time...

Not sure of the fitting size but you can go to a parts store and the tubing. I had to replace mine a while back. They will know what size by telling them your vehicle info. Be sure to get you some of those tube wrenches if you don't already have them.

tube wrenches? I have a line bender already, other than that I want to buy a prefab line that I just thread in and tighten down on both ends.....

...I can't use tephlon tape to seal a leaky joint can I? I use the stuff for the 900psi fittings on my paintball guns but I assume either the pressure in the brake lines is higher than that or the fluid will eat the tape...if it IS possible I'd like to know, it's a minor leak, maybe a cup every 3 weeks but still, unsafe....

Flarenut wrenches is what I was talking about.

Get you some of these cause a regular wrench will round off the nut if they look like they never been messed with or look a little rusty.

I think there is different types of teflon tape. I seen about 3 or 4 diff types at Lowes. May check into that. It's not all that tuff to bend it yourself. When I did mine they told me all they had was straight stuff not prebent (Factory Spec) stuff.

I can bend it, I just need to know factory length (maybe add 2" for myself) and what the threads are on either end...I am pretty sure they are different...
