I've also heard stories of guys using thier mother-in-laws as "carbon monoxide testers" ... similar to how they used to use canaries in the mines.

If she stopped squawking, it was time to get out.

rj57 Copper lines on cars/trucks has been discussed quite a lot. I know most say, "Don't do it."

With that in mind............ my buddy used copper to run the fuel line from the tank to the fuel pump on my 150 Wagon I bought from him 18 years ago.

I know for a fact this copper fuel line has been on my Wagon for over 20 years now. So maybe it's not the smartest thing to do but it can work.

redlightning Oldschool,I agree.
OneMore,It is a junker.It,s just a frame.I am going to haul it off for scrap.I have already cut the lines off and took them with some copper wire to the scrap yard.I had never seen it used for brake lines before and was just wondering if it was something they did back in the day, or the guy my Father got it from was building it for an ex-wife.

OneMoreTime Copper lines on a car are a no-no Copper will work harden as it vibrates and will break in use..

I have seen some shade tree stuff done with copper and no I woudl not ride in something like that as it would be my luck that the lines would break with me in it..

Copper Brake Line,Fuel Line

My Father passed away in Oct and I have been cleaning up the old place for my Mother.I sold a 49 Jeep truck on ebay.The buyer just wanted the cab.It had copper brake lines and a copper fuel line.
Was this a common thing to do back then?
