Copper washers

Recommended Posts

I reused the copper washer on my brake line, bad mistake, will get new washers a O Riley's today.

i read this on a search, I guess it would be less expensive. "Pennies with holes drilled in them also work.  smiley_abused.gif Did that when i was about 17, worked perfectly. I would not try that now that i am older."

As a matter of fact, I did anneal the entire truck. It is the only means to a strong, permanent exterior. No dummies fell from my family tree!

Some of the current day replacement copper brake line washers are so hard they don't seal.

I do lots of brake jobs on both modern and old cars and have had to soften many new washers to prevent leaks after first making sure there are no surface imperfections.

I am beginning to hate a lot of modern replacement parts in my job!
