Install of Disc Brakes

Piper Guy,


Have a question, what size Hydraulic line do you use when install your Kodiak Disc brakes? I have a Hydrastar HBA-16 a set of Kodiak disc to install on my Redwood 41'



Thank you


Bill

Brake Line

This is what I used, needed more than what came in kit from Performance Trailer Braking. I ran down both sides.

Morryde did my install , its 3/16" front to back and side to side. I would get a install kit from performance trailer brakes so your not looking for any parts. you don't want to use much rubber lines they will take away some braking power and response time. just short rubber lines to the wheelsand the rest hard lines.

You'll also need the brake line flaring tool & a handful of fittings.

Please be aware that brake lines use a double flare, not a single flare like an old oil heater. If you don't already have one and know how to use it, get a decent double flare tool and some extra line to practice on first. Your life and others lives can be dependent on your brakes. I don't know if they still do or not, but some auto parts stores used to "rent tools for free". They would charge a deposit large enough to cover the cost of the tool, then refund it when the tool was brought back.

3/16" I used Copper Nickel muck easier to work with, and never rust. Harbor freight sell a nice little bender that works great with co/ni lines, don't try it on steel. https://www.harborfreight.com/1-8-ei...der-94571.htmlhttps://www.amazon.com/Roll-Copper-Nickel-Brake-Tubing/dp/B015YGQYW2/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=copper+nickel+bra ke+line+3%2F16&qid=1590853269&sprefix=copper+nic&s r=8-3.
