how do i get 3/16\" brake line into a 1/8\" hole?

I hope i can describe this all right.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I am making new brake lines for the CJ in 3/16 tubing. I needed a new proportiong valve so i bought one of the adjustable ones from summit. Here is problem the inlet holes on the proportiong valve are 1/8. I haven't seen anything that will work yet, maybe you guys can fill me in. thanks- Tim

Are you talking about the threaded holes in the valve? If so, you should be able to buy an adapter that will thread into the valve and allow the line to thread into the adapter. Your local autoparts store should have adapters of that nature, if not try a hardware store.

Might want to put some antiseize on there, but you don't need any sealant on a flare fitting.
