Default Need Help ASAP - SS Brake Line Install / WTF

So I am attempting the SS Line install and my First line is giving me nothing but trouble.

I'm using a 10mm Flare to get at the small nut on the bottom where the hard line meets the stock rubber liine and I'm damn near stripping the nut!


I've tried everything I can think of to get the damn things to move and nothing will budge!... Wtf

Any Ideas?

use vice grips if needed, those suckers can be tight like a tiger, use a little liquid wrench or wd40 too

are you using the right kind of wrenches? They strip really easy without the tubing wrenches

he said flare wrench and that's what they call for, but I had the same problem when i used flare wrenches too. i used a nice big set of vice grips to break the nuts free and didn't damage the nut at all

Turns out that my neighbor overheard my aggravation induced swears.
He came out with some vice grips (just as you guys mentioned) and they worked wonders!

New lines are in and all lines have been bleed twice. She stops on a dime.

Thanks for the support guys. Its frustrating when stuff breaks...

I keep two bottles of liquid wrench in my travel tool box. Liquid wrench is unbelievable. Only problem is that if you start breathing that **** in, you'll start feeling fuuuuuuunny.

I perfer Kroil or Toyota's penetrating lubracant (Toyota PN 00530-1PL00). Both seem to have worked better for me in the past.
