    Thread: Brake lines distance ?

    1. 01-14-2012 08:31 PM #1

      Why some brake lines are in spiral from the output of the brake cilinder? is this because of the distance of the brake line ? i think left and rear lines need to be exactly the same distance ,or how does this work talking about fluids?

      When i press the brake pedal and the master cilynder delivery the brake fluid to the rear brakes if the distance its not the same will one side brakes more than the other ?

      in theory the hydraulic fluid free of air should compress at the same time since pressure from the master cylinder will be exerted equally. that distance shouldnt really matter.

      The spiral is to allow a small amount of flex.
