Re: [DML] Removing old break lines

I had the same issue a few years ago when I replaced mine. What I did 
was put the nut back, but only go down a few threads. This will give 
you a larger surface for the next step. Now get the largest open 
ended wrench you have and place the end of it against the 
washer/line. You can now hammer against the wrench to slowly push 
that line out. It takes awhile, so don't freak out if it doesn't come 
out within the first few hits. Once you get it towards the end, 
remove the nut and hammer the line all the way out.

At times I swear the factory crimped and epoxied the lines in as it 
takes a lot of work to get them out!
