  • Reproduction Of Original
For restorers the availability of pre-bent, reproduction steel brake lines is a blessing. Why, because fabricating brake lines at home with the correct length, bends, armor, fittings and flares is darn near impossible. Fortunately, reproduction brake lines from Eckler's meet all of the above criteria, the length is perfect, the bends are just like the originals, correct armor is used where applicable, the fittings are the correct size, shape and color, the lines have 45° double flares and they are made of steel just like the factory installed lines. You'll also be pleased to know these lines meet or exceed all D.O.T. specifications for safety. The next thing you might ask as a restorer is why do I need to replace my original brake lines at all? The answer is because D.O.T. 3 & 4 brake fluids (the fluid the factory used and the fluid almost everyone uses) is hydroscopic, which means it draws fluids in, chiefly water, which over the years will corrode steel lines if the fluid was not changed regularly (and most owners did not). So, there's a good reason to change them and great reproduction brake lines available for your use. Count on Eckler's for the very best in reproduction steel brake lines.

Did you know? On steel brake lines and particularly stainless steel brake lines (because of their hardness) it is especially important to seat the flared lines into the brass blocks. The best way to do this is with brake line wrenches so you can apply adequate torque to seat the fitting. Most open end wrenches tend to round-off the fitting before it is fully seated. It is also interesting to note that brass brake blocks are ideally meant for a one-time use only.
