Hydraulic pipe lengths

Post by Binx » Wed Nov 07, 2018 9:57 pm

HI

I am going home to Ireland at Christmas and want to replace the Hydraulic lines on my 1984 19RD,

It failed the test recently due to corroded brake lines,

Does anyone have a list of pipe lengths?

I want to see if I can have all the required supplies there for when I return,

Any tips from anyone who has done this before would be more than appreciated!

Regards

Lloyd

I don't know the lengths but I think Pleiades sell them ready made. 01487 831239

Thanks I am a little confused, some websites show they have closed, but facebook shows them as open....

Anyway, I have three Citroens and would like the experience of fitting myself,
Just being lazy hoping someone had a list of lengths so I could know roughly how much raw material I would need..

They're definitely still open. I think the confusion is because they had to move garages-- they stayed in the same village .

Yes, it would be cheaper if you did it yourself. I take it you are aware of the non'standard flare size?

Thanks,
Yes I am aware of the different flare type, I think I have the use of the special tool from a neighbour at home.
