    Are you saying lube up the bolt with something like Copper Coat ? The inner parts of the Uniball has rubber seals on each end. I notice one of the Uniball is very stiff and the other one rotates freely. I wonder if that is normal or not. Thanks for your help.

    A little tip for anyone doing brake work on a Fiat I learned during this project. I've seen in other postings comments about the metal brake lines being over flared and hard to get apart. I'm not sure if what I found is what they are talking about or not. The metal fitting/threaded nut on the brake lines are soft. If they were overly tightened the leading edge will flare out. I had a time getting two of mine off and had to file the flared metal down to get the lines to go back on. Once I filed them down they went in easy.

    Uni all Installing Help

    I will post some feedback after I get to drive the car. I had to stop work on the car and make an unplanned drive to VA. All I had left to do was bleed the brakes.

    Did you get any images of the line flare you discuss, that you had to manipulate to refit?

    thanks for the share on the uniball install.

    I hoping to finish this up tomorrow. I would like some opinions on should I use some three year old brake fluid I have or not ? It has been in closed containers the whole time. I'll post a drawing on the brake line problem later tonight.

    fitting.jpgHere is what I ran into on getting the OEM brake lines off. The areas indicated by the arrows gets flared out around the OD of the tubing nut ( for lack of a better name) and makes the lines harder to get out. Once you get them apart,you can slide the nut away from the end of the line and use a small file to remove the flared out area. Be very careful to not damage the sealing surface on the end of the tubing.
