      Comments about NiCopp Nickel Copper Alloy Brake Line Coil - 1/4" x 25:

      It can kink if you aren't careful. Watch for work hardening caused by having to bend it back and forth to get around obstructions when pulling it into position. When installing a one piece line(as opposed to using couplings with multiple short lengths) it's best to have a hand at every obstrucion to the pull can be continous and you aren't having pull two inches, get up, go back to the next obstruction. Repeating for each obstruction until you're at the free end. All for just two inches or so of movement. Again, it has to be bent around every obstruction.

      If your brake line has rusted, Your bleeder screws most likely are also. Use plenty of heat to free them. Once the rust is off the bleeder, try putting the next smaller six point socket on it (Metric if the orginal was SAE, SAE if the orginal was metric)to prevent rounding the hex.

      Use new bleeder screws and in additon to the caps that keep dirt out of the hole, use a tight fitting hose over the hex of the screw with a dab of high melting point grease to prevent rust from forming.

            I completely replaced all the brake lines on my truck using 3/16 and 1/4 inch lines of nicopp easiest material I've ever had to work with. I work as a ford mechanic for 3 years and this is by far the best lines I've used definitely a lot more forgiving when bending compared to steel and stainless steel lines. Hold pressure just as good and flares super easy and they come out looking perfect with this. Spend the extra money and get this lines and never have to worry about rusted out lines again, especially if you live in New England like myself.

                EASSY TO BEND. BE CAREFUL WITH FLARED ENDS AS THIS MATERIAL IS SOFTER THAN STEEL AND IF OVERTIGHTENED YOU CAN PUSH THE FLARE OUT.

                  Comments about NiCopp Nickel Copper Alloy Brake Line Coil - 1/4" x 25:

                  When I tried to replace five 1/4" lines on a 2000 Silverado 4WD that all converge into the BPMV (anti-lock), I found that Nicopp does not bend in a tight radius that is required in that area, even though I was using special tight-radius bending pliers designed for that purpose. Since the tube is manufactured "straight", and then coiled for shipping, by straightening out the coil to form a replacement pipe, the material has already been "bent" twice, which work-hardens the material, making it hard to bend the 3rd time in a tight-radius for installation. For a curvature of > 2", it is no problem, however. By the way, the green-coated standard tube Advance sells, the anti-rust coating scratches right off during installation, however I can bend that stuff almost as tight as my wedding ring.

                  Comments about NiCopp Nickel Copper Alloy Brake Line Coil - 1/4" x 25:

                  This NiCopp flares and bends very easily. Perhaps it bends a little too easily as the finsih results can look amatureish if you are not very careful. I wonder if the European OEM munufactures that use it don't use coiled armor to protect it since it seems that it could get damaged easily. I used a Eastwood flaring tool and I have never gotten such good 45% double flare in over 45 years trying. I was very pleased with the ease of flaring. Bending is easy but you have to be careful as it will kink.

                  weigh the pros of ease of use/time saver vs expense. Time saved may pay for labor to install the lines. If time isn't a factor and you have the tools, steel will be cheaper.
                  I installed on a plow truck for the corrosive environment it works in....

                        Easy to bend and flare, ideal for brake and fuel line, does not corrode but will darken in color. If restoring a vehicle, using NiCopp lines is money better spent than buying a stainless exhaust. Advance has the best price by far for it too.
