personally i would replace the pipe(s) with cupro nickel brake pipe (kunifer)

a little harder than copper but will withstand alot more pressure and is more resistant to corrosion. only down side is its slightly more expensive.

hi dezwez,

yeah 3/16" (4.72mm) O.D pipe is pretty much the standard size on all cars. I cant think why but im sure the thread size is 10x1mm - might have been when i done my brake hoses, again though i think this is quite a standard size for 3/16" pipe.

i have some spare bits of pipe and nuts from when i last touched the brakes so i will go check this for you right now...

just thought, i know why i said 10x1mm - when i replaced rear wheel cylinders i was able to screw the bleed nipple (10x1x20mm) into either port meaning the brake pipe nuts are the same thread.

ive just checked for you anyway, definetly 3/16"/4.72mm O.D pipe and 10x1mm thread for the nuts.

cool thank you so much.


i dont want to start confusing things more but you will need to make sure you get a tool that is capable of making DIN/ISO/bubble flares (call it what you will). not sure if the cheaper ones will do this or not.

cheers
