Stainless Steel Brake Fittings, Where From?

Recommended Posts

Isn't Goggle a brilliant resource, well actually it isn't, most of the time it finds worthless Ebay links and general rubbish that equates nothing to what you put into the search field.

Well, simply put I have been searching for much time now to find a supplier of stainless steel brake unions so that when I rebuild my 101 I don't have rusty nuts for when the inevitable replacing of the slave cylinders et cetera happen.

I believe Mr. Barton on here used to supply them but no longer does. Can any one point me in the right direction?.

David @ http://www.lama4x4.com/ will make up just about any hose you like, to any length you like in stainless, give him a ring, He might well be able to source the unions you are after as he does a huge amount with hydraulics etc.... :)

In addition to -ebay -e-bay you also can use site:xxx.yyy (for example if you only want sites from the co.uk domain add site:.co.uk to your search)

David from Llama does supply stainless brake pipes so should also be able to supply the parts you need.

He also Has another site for ducting and Hoses but I cannot find it anywhere and he won't post a link :( .

I've never tried the www. thing but have had stainless hoses and unions put together in my desired length by (autosave) don't know if they are a nation wide thing but got 2 sets 7 years ago very cheap and still have them today with no issues. I've advised friends and they have the same thing. 1 Set I've had on three cars, superb. :)

I've had a look at both Goodrich and Earles and unfortunately after some time searching through lots of their braided hosing I gave up.

However, two success stories, BeamendsLRS supply stainless 3/8 UNF, 7/16 UNF and M10 stainless on certain items. While Stainless parts can supply as stated in an email:

"The 3/16 i/d Stainless Steel Brake Unions on the website is the INTERNAL DIAMETER. the threads (UNF) are actually 3/8 UNF. We do have in line bulkhead fittings for the 3/16 i/d x 3/8UNF. the only 7/16 fittings we have are in brass.

I hope this helps"

Getting there, but not all the bits I need!
