i have a couple of sections of brake pipe to replace and want to make them up myself. are the fittings metric or imperial? is 3/16 brake pipe standard too?

ive just done the brake pipes on the front calipers of my 95 defender, and the pipe i bought is automec 3/16" x 7.62mtrs and i beleive the fittings are imperial. you will also need a brake pipe flaring kit, and a pipe cutter or be gentle with a hacksaw. the flaring kit is about 25 and the 7.62mtrs of pipe cost me 8. hope this helps.

a disco has metric fittings on the brake lines i did 3 last week all metric. is it front to back that you are doing if so its quicker to replace the chassis clips instead of trying to save them they are only a few quid or i will send you some i have loads of new ones.if you want i will make you a set of pipes up and send them up to you Very Happy
