Rear brake pipes into compensator valve
I tried to take the brake pipes off the rear balancer in order to remove the rear subframe.
Unfortunately, as we all know, the brake balancer valve gets very badly corroded as so do the pipes which were properly rusted at the union.
Obviously I didn't do it the smart way and proceeded in trying to remove the pipes from the brake balancer valve.
The brake valve compensator has 2 sizes, 10mm and 12mm, and now I can't remember where the larger unions go to which part of the car (i.e. does the 12mm go to the rear brake calipers)
Also do the 12mm unions use 3/16th pipe? I need to buy a tool to make proper bubble flares (I can never ever get a decent flare from the cheap ones)
