[Healeys] Brake line

You can easily bend steel lines by hand. You might need a round pipe to get a smooth curve. Sometimes I use a partially open vice to bend the line if it is near and end of the line. You might need to flare the line after putting on the fitting. Be sure the fitting is in place at the end of the line if you need a tight bend that the fitting will not slide over.

Finally getting to work on the 67 B I bought for my wife. Seller told me a metal brake line was cracked and leaking...turns out the someone tried to braise a patch on the line and it leaked. Any advice on bending the replacement line to match the old one?
