My old rusty brake line cracked and I am planning on replacing it tonight. Does anyone know the brake line diameter and fitting size on my 93 FSB.

I'm just trying to save a bit of time and get the parts on my way home from work. lord knows the pimply dork at pep boys doesn't know what size it is.

I think the hardline on my 89 is 3/16'' or 4.5mm.

well the answer to my question is 3/16. For those of you searching for fuel size, I have found it best to take off the old line so that you have the connecting end with you when you go to the auto parts store. there are a couple different thread types and you don't want to %@$# that up.

thanks everyone for the help and quick input.

I know. I just couldnt stop looking at your avatar pic long enough to read the whole post. lol
:histerica It's good practice to do what you did and bring in the part when possible just to be safe.

Are you just replacing a piece at the diff or do ya gotta go all the way from the master cylinder?

just a 4' section from the diff to the transfer case. every thing from there forward was in good shape

I dont know if you are going to keep it, since you are in the rust belt, some of the best money I have spent is on stainless steel brake lines.

This is my long term project so I will need to do something more permanent. I had to do a quick fix because my porsche 944 crapped out 2 days before the brakes went out on the beast. I hate driving the wife's grocery getter.

I was wondering where you did the "patch", and if it required a compression fitting. I dont like those, but the steel ones are the only ones to use on steel line. The brass ones are not for brakes.

I used a steel comp fitting. it was done literally right at the back side of the transfer case.
