hi,

im replacing the rear cylinder on my 90, i need to trim the copper brake line and put a new bolt on it and then flare and refit it. anyone know where i can get the bolt from, the existing one is rounded and not worth putting back on!

cheers

Any decent motor factors should stock them.

Do you have a brake pipe flaring tool and is there enough spare pipe to reform the end and still reach the cylinder? You'll lose approx 5mm of pipe for the flare plus the bit that you chop off.

Take your old rounded off union with you and make sure you get the same thread.

Mark.

What Ivan says would be the ideal way to do it. Failing that you can join brake pipes by using a male and female union. Make sure that one of your flares is convex and the other concave. IIRC the female union should have a concave flare and the male union a convex flare.
