ok just discovered I do not own whatever tool is needed to remove BE Brake Lines from a BE Master Cylinder. Tried bending up a cheap 7/16" flare Nut Wrench but still can't get the right angle. What's the secret guys perhaps a Crow Foot Box End Wrench?

Flare Nut End is what I meant . Complete Set $11.99 at HF. Time to buy a Metric Set as well as new Brake lines Have Metric Nuts on them. Time for a little more PB Blaster and then a trip to HF this PM.

I have a cheap offset line wrench with a flex head. I bought it at autozone. It seems to work well.

I've always been lucky enough to be able to remove them with just a stout open end wrench. I'm going to be looking for Trevor's wrench now though.

Found it at AutoZone. Works really slick. Duralast Brand now. $14.95 it saved the day and actually made the job easy. 7/16" and 3/8 " open ended FlexHead Brake Line Wrench.

Pedal Box and MC is out for paint and cleanup. Pedals are a little bit ovaled out where they attach to the MC but not enough to get the welder out to close up the holes and redrill.

Wire Wheel treatment, need to degrease, and then paint. And yes I did separate the Brake Pushrod from the Clutch Pushrod and marked as they appear to be of a different length. At least they are adjusted that way.

INFLATION... when i bought it in 2008 I'm sure it wasn't over $8.
