The first thing I need to do is separate the steel brake line from fitting on the braided line. that fitting, the clip, and the steel piece they are mounted on are all rusted together. Have sprayed with PB several times over 2 days; knocked the clip prongs away from the steel piece with a screwdriver, and also knocked the whole assembly with screwdriver and hammer. Tried to turn the nut on the steel brake line and it is fuzed on there. If I buy one of those mini butane torches, will it apply enough heat to at least allow me to seperate the steel line from the braided line fitting? I definitely have enough room to try and do a double flare coupling....and I want to try that first.
