Brake reservoir tubing...

DGY sold me some clear tubing to connect up my brembo reservoir, it fit and works well enough but it's sweating out brake fluid pretty bad, did they sell me the wrong stuff?

Hose is hose right?



nope.

The line from the tank to the evap .I've seen that one brittle and broken spilling gas every time the tank was filled.

Wash your tank and fearing of any brake fluid.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

I got some good stuff from MCC in Villa Park, it's gray and they sell it by the foot. No problems with the sweating you are having.

Another good vote for kurveygirl.com. I've ordered stuff from both her website and ebay account and she kicks ass.
