Who sells rear brakelines for the RMW's?
Or do you just bend them yourselves?

Would they be the same as Caprice assuming they have rear drums? The wheel base is the same. I plan on doing the rear disc brake mod , so Stainless lines are in the plans for my RMW.

AFAIK they are the same beast. Inline tube or classic tube will probably be the best bet for prebent lines. I'd start there.

A wagon would most likely have an 8.5" rear with drums unless someone swapped it out. Don't take it as a sure thing though, I'm just assuming.

Those lines won't take you long. The bitch is flaring the ends if you don't have the right tool. I had to take mine out a an take them over and have ends put on and flaired. Some double flair shit. I don't know

I've had good luck with a cheap Performance Tool double flaring tool from autozone, oreillys, etc. Worked better than a Craftsman tool that a friend gave me.

OK thanks, guess I can handle it.
Do the parts stores sell that sleeved (protective coil) brake line?
Cant remember if I've seen it there or not

I don't recall seeing it there. NAPA in Nashua can help you, I'm sure. They're great!

From Gerry (95wagon) on that other forum before the "crash":

Ok, I just looked at and measured EVERY line and fitting from a 95
Every flare is bubble except on the diff housing.

Although likely metric I am going to call the tube size in inches , as in 3/16 and ¼

The Master is
10-1.50 3/16
12-1.00 1/4
The combo valve.
In is 10-1.50 3/16 and 12-1.00 1/4



Out is 10-1.00 3/16 and 12-1.50 1/4

ABS
In is : front 10-1.00 3/16
rear 12-1.00 1/4
Out is : front left 12-1.00 3/16
front right 10-1.00 3/16
rear 12-1.00 1/4

I don’t have the rear line here but know it is bubble and am fairly sure it is 12-1.00 at the flex hose end.
On the diff housing they are 3/16 inverted flare in the center and
( with drums) 3/16 inverted flare at the wheel cylinders.
( with discs) bubble flare 10-1.00 thread at the wheel flex hoses
double check your sizes but I believe this info to be correct.
Because of some of the odd sizes you might want to save your old nuts where ever possible.

.. Razz .. Razz .. Razz ...Tellem Chris sent you for the special pricing
Well...actually...the price is the same but...
you get a sales slip & return slip & another sales slip so....
because it cost THEM more to charge YOU the same, you got a deal...right?
Mad
