Question

Does anyone know where to buy the "spring like" protective coil to use on new brake lines?

Cool

I went to a spring maker and had a length made in stainless steel wire and then cut as required

Why don't you try some of the after market vendors line " Fine Lines", etc,
I installed SS brake lines & the metal protective covers where in all of the correct places. So they must have them.

Just FYI, I have tried to transfer that stuff from line to line and it is a [email protected]#h to take off and put on. You probably need to cut one end off and thread it on if it's a long piece.

18436572, that's what I thought... But my dealer did not know about it, had never had that request and could not help.

Thanks for the reply, I might try the dealer again.

Tubing and all kinds of cool hardware (nuts, bolts, clips, etc) were listed in a seperate catalog called "The Standard Parts Catalog"....See if that rings a bell with Your GM Parts Guy....

Turbo_Jet - my experience with the GM dealers is like yours. They don't have jack for these cars. In fact, I sometimes wonder if the guys working behind the counter know GM made cars before 1990. If you live near a GM parts counter that is helpful, you are very lucky.

denver, I have been very lucky with my local dealer. I have got to know the guy's and gal's at the parts counter pretty well and they really help me out -- I am surprised at the parts that are still available! They have the "old" books and are willing to look up the old parts I want.

I think they just don't know about this stuff.

thanks for the reply.
