brake hose won't disconnect from brake line

I'm not sure why I sprayed it with wd40 but not the pb which I heard works wonders. I got the banjo off but can't get the hose disconnected the metal line just keeps turning as I turn the wrench. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Just take the hard line off and replace it too, by the sound of it it's prob seen better days. U can get it at advanced in sections of whatever length u need pretty much. They aren't very expensive either, also it's 3/16s line if u need to no. Otherwise ur only others option is heat it then spray it with pb, put a vise grip on the line and turn the other with a wrench. I just pulled mine off completely and replaced as mine all did what ur describing and were super rusty. I gave up on trying to massage it out and just ran new hard lines...

yeah, guess that's what im going to do over the weekend or early next week when I have some time off.. i fought with it for about an hour hoping it'd come free at somepoint and i was wrong the medal line looked like a twizzler! how difficult was it for you to run the hard line from the master?

Not hard at all, for the one hard line that is really long u may have to get an adapter and connect 2 sections together. That was the toughest thing I ran into, once u get the old rusty ones out of there, it's all downhill.

You can buy it that way, yes, but its easier to buy pre cut lengths that have the ends already on them.

You can either buy a coil of it and use the free loaner double flair tool most auto parts stores have, or you can buy the pre-cut lengths. If the main hard line from the front to the back is the issue then you may need to buy an adapter to connect two shorter lines together.
I somehow ended up as the brake guy and always end up running new hard lines for people so I have my own double flair tool and keep a bunch of fittings and lines in my shop.

:-)

PS> If you rent a loaner DF tool make sure it has all the pieces before you leave the store! Ask me how I know....

Flaring lines is not all that hard but it is a skill to do well. If you measure with care you can replace all the hard lines on the entire jeep with pre flared sections for about $50. You will probably need one union for the front to back section and one for the piece running over to the right front wheel. Otherwise you can get enough different lengths to make it all fit perfectly.

If the rest of the brakes need attention it's a good time to replace everything and have all new parts with all good clean fluid. You will notice a difference.

It's sold in kits for that, correct? like on 4wd, quadratec etc etc...? do you know where I could pick up a reasonably priced one? kinda working on a budget between my jeep, my living costs, college and of course the woman...
