Running brake lines?

Is there some tips and tricks or does it all just suck? On my 66 the upper and lower arms, spindles, booster, maser cylinder wasn't no big deal at all. Rerunning brake lines is taking more time and still not done. Can't wait to get this done so i can test all my effort.

Maybe the fun is not over yet......some of those are difficult to bleed, too! sometimes the saftey valve closes one system off, while bleeding.

I did one a few months back for a friend and had no problems though. My own 66 camper special was a real problem child, I ended up making a pressure bleeder to fix that one.

Afraid of that, i'm just ready to cross the bridge of getting the lines ran. I was almost done then got to thinking about my efforts and decided if i ever have a problem in this area then how i ran the line is going to get in the way of that so i jerked them off and going a different route (of course it is the route with more turns and bends).

I actually ENJOY double flaring and running lines ...
It relaxes me.









I use a MityVac brake bleed system ... to bleed the brakes ... works good IMHO
