Popped one of the short steel tube brake lines at the fitting on my loadstar 1600 yesterday. Thankfully the truck was empty and I try to keep the hand brake well adjusted for this reason. After a short inspection, I"m thinking all the brake lines and bleeders need to be replaced on this truck before I drive it to the elevator again.

What is the procedure for bleeding the system on this truck? And what is recommended for replacement lines? Was thinking of using braided stainless, at least for the short ones on the wheels.

depending on year, climate of state,check with truck repair places, if braided line are strong enough to handle pressure, as for bleeding, always the farest one from master cyl, next longest and so on...
