27-05 Brake Lines

The hard part of doing the brake lines is putting on the damn fittings.  Sometimes the tubing is too tight to allow the compression fitting to slide over the part of the tube with the ferrel.  I’ve used creative cussing, some judicious shavings and novel applications of cleco pliers to squeeze the last few mm of hose into the nut.  Whew!  Anyway, back to business...

Aft terminations of main brake lines

This is a pretty cool shot—you’re looking at the L brake line as it exits the mid bulkhead and is terminated by the nut for a 45° elbow.  I put tape over the end to keep debris out.
