Flexible Brake Hose

Post by aspira » Fri Jul 05, 2019 12:55 pm

Hi there,
Does anyone know where I can get a flexible brake hose. It connects from an Austin Princess calliper to my MGB brake pipework (Metric to imperial). Clive Wheatley used to make them up but doesn't do so anymore.
Any ideas please?

Make up a new brake pipe with a suitable end? Both imperial and metric are still easy to get. Solves the problem for next time too.

Try Pirtek. The Cambridge branch certainly makes flexible brake hoses.

They are so easy to do yourself with compression connectors. I have made up many.

CBS Online is one very good place to go to https://www.carbuildersolutions.com/uk/

See CBS's video on how to do them.
