So three days later and I'm still in the midst of my brake job.
Basically my brakes were held together by grime and rust. Naturally the more I fix the more I break off.
Meet my latest victim, the axle vent tube:
I had to go at the sucker pretty good with the vice grips and metric deep sockets. I think I eventually ended up getting a 1/2" on there, or maybe it was 13mm. Anyway, I'm ordering a new one from JBG. Is this the right one? Does it look like it'll work in the old brake hose? It's the same size as the old one, just possibly longer. I can shim it up with washers if that's the case
Lastly, when I put that tube back on, should I seal the threads up with some black RTV?
