Maybe you could soak the whole thing in some kind of solvent for a couple days?
i took my clogged lines to a local motorcycle shop and they matched them, 20 bucks for two lines, they were different lengths, slightly longer, but it made no braking difference. got a old shop near you?
I'd advise you to save your nickels and get new lines, you're just peeing into the wind otherwise. Now that my PSA is out of the way, denatured alcohol (available in the paint isle at your local hardware store) would be your solvent of choice.
If your brake lines are clogged it means the inner lining is rotten and collapsing. Get new lines.
So, has anyone cleaned their clogged lines? Any ideas?
Dude is that a tire ? or an O-ring..??
This is not a pod threadThis is not a #$%* on my vacuum gauges threadThis is a help or GTFO thread.
Fully noted about the new lines; thank you for the advice everyone; I will get them asap.I did get it clear today. I used big guitar strings and lots more brake cleaner. The clog was actually very small, with the rest of of the brake line clear and easy to push the string through; it seems to me that this would be more indicative of localized formation and drying of particulates than of collapsing lines though Thanks for the suggestions and the constantly-needed reminder for cheapies like me to play it safe.
