Matco Brakeline Ferrels

Postby orenjr » Wed May 24, 2017 8:23 pm

Do any of you know if i can use a regular ferrel and nut on 1/8" brake lines?
I had to redo my bottom line and only found the separate pieces at ACE Hardware.
The original has a ferrel built into the nut.
Thanks! Oren

Hey Oren,
I dont honestly know if they will work, I was kind of afraid to try it, since they look different. I just ordered more form Matco. They shipped them right out, I had them in a couple days. Felt a lot better about that route personally.

Thanks! Ben
I called matco and they said that there is a different taper on the fitting and thus need the one piece nut and Ferrel.I hope they come in time for my Dar to sign off on Thursday.
