Re: rear brake line 1968 camaro

If you disconnected the flex hose from the junction block on the diff and you canít get fluid out, Iíd bet the flex hose is bad. They deteriorate and collapse inside, and cause a blockage.

Been there...done that!

Also, if the rear one is bad, itís time to replace the front ones too.

^^^yep

and if the flare fitting from hard brake line is frozen to rubber line these wrenches work when a flare wrench won't.

This is the same Snap-On tool that costs stupid $ for way less

oo.
No i only unhooked the hard line from the metal connector at rearend ,a mechanic told me that when my old line broke that the proportion valve closed off fluid to rear and to just let a little brake fluid out of one of the front brakes and this would let the ball go back to center allowing fluid to go to rear brakes but i tried this 3 times with no luck smd there is also no reset on either end of the proportion valve
