Thanks for all the help on my project so far guys.
2 more things:
1. I assume this is part of the brake line. See pics. This is the old axle.
A black tube was running into the brass piece. What was that?
Another line, braided, was running into the front but I cut it off...that was the brake line.
The second pic is the new axle. The was no brass fitting to put the tube on to, ther was only a bolt. The brass fitting will not fit into the hole because the brass is too big.
You'll see a little nub sticking up to the right. Should I use that even though it's smaller than the tube? I could probably use a clamp to tighten it.
Do I need to get a fitting to fit in the hole and connect the tube to it?
2. I'm having a hard time screwing the old braided brake line on because the one end is connected and the other end is fixed, meaning it doesn't spin. I was going to get a new brake line but it doesn't look like the end unscrews, it looks pressed on.
Is there a solution to this?
