Hiya folks.

1953 Chevrolet 3100 series(half ton) pickup

I am trying to replace all of the brake lines as I had a rupture last year, I have all of the lines removed, finally.

I had to take the MC off the truck in order to get this brake line loose.

I have questions about the line that goes into the back of the brake master cylinder, it has a thread on it, then it passes through the brass piece on there.

Can I buy a new brake line with this thread on it? I've never seen a brake line quite like this before, so I'm guessing the parts store people will be equally confused.

Any help on terminology or a parts source is appreciated, thank you.

The part with the threads on it with the brake line attached doesn't break down any further?

RAM_51,

yes, it does, but I didn't know that at the time I posted the question. I suspected it did, but I had never worked on any chevy brakes this old, so I wasn't sure.

I put the bolt in a vice and took a pair of vice grips to the corroded brake line side, where the nut was rounded off... after a few attempts with the old metal on the brake line flaking off, finally got down to some good metal with a grip and the brake line nut broke loose. Then I was able to take it apart and clean it up.
