Re: Gettin\' brake lines off prop. valve
I don't think there is a totally fool proof method. I would suggest a liberal application of break-free or liquid wrench and allow at least a couple hours of soak time. Line wrenches are a must on brake lines to keep from rounding the corners off. Im pretty sure they made them out of butter. Also, make sure the lines are completely square when you reinstall the valve. I believe the valve is brass and very prone to stripping. I trashed one w/o even feeling any resistance. If you have or are planning to install some custom brake work, now might also be a good time to install an adjustable brake valve. The ones I've seen are at least as good as stock if not better, and quite a bit cheaper.
