Brake pipe connector trouble

Recommended Posts

All, I'm trying to connect a new brake pipe onto the RL brake of a defender 90. The threads of the brake housing are a bit scruffy and old and I'm having trouble getting the screw to screw. I'm worried about cross threading it. Any advice or good technique I could learn from out there?

Make sure that you aren't trying to put a 3/8" thread into a 10mm thread hole (or vise versa). See how easy the old fitting screws in - it may just be an alignment issue. Sometimes - having the wheel cylinder still loose, makes starting the thread easier.
