Re: Another brake question(s)
My first thought on how you can get the the the brake line nut loose on the proportioning valve with out destroying it, was simply : "good luck".
I hate to say this , but unless your extremely lucky,,,your going to end up chewing into that nut. I've replaced the brake lines on a number of different jeeps including my own. I've never had one come out easy. Get your best set of vice grips to lock on that nut, and a good C clamp to hold the valve to the frame when you start to muscle it out.....there is also an extremely good chance you'll twist the line when you do. So, you may want to have enough new line on hand. You shouldnt hurt the valve, but the nut, most likely isnt going to want to budge. If you have the extra line on hand, its no big deal, if your one of the lucky ones..you can always take the extra line back,,,,,,
