I am getting the 9in rear end ready to install. It has part of the rubber line that feeds the junction block on the housing. How do you get it off to replace it? I have tried to put vise grips on it but it does not want to turn. How do you get the brass block off.
The original blocks on these trucks were a separate piece and the hose screwed into it. From about the 60's on, the block is permanently crimped onto the hose. You replace the whole thing as an assembly. If your 9" is out of a newer truck, I'd guess that's what you've got.
