Here are the steps to replace your CJ front brake hoses. Thanks for the help Donald :!:

First U have to get the shirt on :banghead:

Next, loosen the tires lug nutz.

Here is my buddy Donald jacking up the CJ to begain work.

Old brake line assy.

Remove the clip to loosen the brake hose.

Remove old brake hose. If U can't get the 3/8" line wrench on the spring side of the hard line just use a small flat screw driver & slide the hard line spring back, then the wrench will fit.

Here R the new / old hoses.

Remove the original bolt from the old hose & use it on the new one. MAKE SURE U use the new copper washers on BOTH sides.

Sorry, didn't have my camera on close up.

Install bolt in new hose w/the TWO washers & tighten down.

New hose installed & retaining clip.

Now I use a vacuum pump to suck all the air out of the system. Keep a watch on the master cylinder because the vacuum pump sucks it down pretty quick.

Reinstall the tire.

If I do that then I would have to take it apart again. It was hard to see the screen on the camera in the sunshine, plus I didn't have my lighter. :rof:
