Wheel Cylinder Bolts + flair nut question!!!
I run a 94 yj 2.5l 4cyl 5 speed manual. I am tackling the rear drum brakes and wheel cylinder (I just replaced the front). I am also replacing the parking brake assembly and all new ebrake cables. I am now stuck on the wheel cylinder bolts and flair nut. Im having a hard time as they seem to be rounding. I'm spraying them with pb blaster periodically. The bolts seem to use either a 3/8 socket or 10mm metric? and the flair nut is somewhere around 8mm metric? I don't want to force more pressure on these until I can figure out whether I need to use SAE or METRIC on them. I'm going out today to get a flair wrench set but need to know whether to get SAE or METRIC. I also have access to a MAAP torch so wondering if it is safe to heat those bolts up near the brake line? so....
1.) SAE or METRIC? if you know exact sizes, then yay!
2.) Safe to use MAAP/Propane torch on the wheel cylinder bolts?
Thanks Fellow Jeepers!!!
Also: I don't think these brakes have been touched in 20 years. lol. Bolts are ON there good.
