It's a big no-no to use copper brake lines anywhere. And with the rigid inspections in Germany and in the Netherlands where Martin is it certainly wouldn't pass. Martin had to have his van inspected by the authorities there and they picked up on the slightest thing. Wouldn't let him register the van until they were all fixed.Wes wrote:It looks copper to me as well. A big no no in USA. Germany may be not.
Copper lines are not strong enough for brake line's hydraulic pressure and will come apart, usually at the flair. But I'm guessing that since Martin said he had a new line made somebody knew what they were doing it is really the Cunifer copper nickel brake line that I provided links for.
Look up Cunifer copper nickel brake line. Good stuff to use when replacing brake lines.
