I only saw double flared line at my napa store. I'll have to give them a call. I'm trying to avoid any kind of adapter that will require teflon tape. I screwed the stock lines directly into the solenoid ports with no adapters and they fit/sealed just fine. So I want the same line/fittings to replace the double flared lines I used.Rench said:If your solenoids will accept 1/8" pipe, I would use 6635 in both ends of the solenoid. You shouldn't have any problem finding metric bubble flare line if you have a NAPA store nearby. The one near me had 12" up to 36" available in stock.
By the way my solenoids have 1/8" npt ports and the stock lines screwed into them with no problem. That's why the whole metric thing was confusing me since 1/8 inch isn't metric.Rench said:If your solenoids will accept 1/8" pipe, I would use 6635 in both ends of the solenoid.

Yes, that's what I'm saying. The summit solenoids looked like they had a tappered seat like the ports on the abs, but it was hard to tell. I have no leaks and I tested it by applying the brakes hard several times, plus i've been driving it for more than a week with no leaks. The bubble flare seals agains a conical seat or tappered seat, unlike a double flare which uses a raised seat that goes into the line.Rench said:Are you saying that the brakeline screwed irectly in to the solenoid? Tha does'nt sound right... Have you pumped the brakes yet to check for leaks? The flare needs to seat against a flare seat to seal..
This is what I did.Rench said:So you used regular brake line in the solenoid then adapted that to the metric seats..I think I get it
so did I! The solenoid pictured is the drivers side one, i have another on the passenger side. I ran the brake line coming out of the abs ( the one that goes to the drivers side brake) to the solenoid and then ran a line from the solenoid back to the abs, it's still after the abs.Rench said:OK, that's apples to oranges to what I was thinking. I used two solenoids 1 for each side. I tapped in after the abs manifold.
