Automec brake kits

5 posts in this topic

As part of my Series 2a rebuild I will be changing all the brake pipes, as part of a massive parts list I sent to all the various suppliers I included the part numbers for the standard steel pre formed brake pipes.

 

Paddocks rang me and suggested I don't go down that route and instead buy an Automec kit.

 

What are people's thoughts?

 

I guess a positive points is they are copper so won't rust but will they work harden and snap? Also I like the idea of the pre formed ones as they are more original. This truck will live in the dry so rusty brake pipes is not going to be an issue for years to come

The automec kits are good I've used several in the past.

Me too, invest in a pipe bender and use the originals as a pattern. Never had one harden and snap in the past.
