95 yj brakes on 85 cj fittings

I Need help with the fittings to connect the stock brake lines and fittings to the '95 YJ master cylinder. Apparently the '95 YJ master cylinder is metric thread. Are there any adapters out there for this connection? I know this is a popular upgrade but I can't seem to find the information on these adapters. The 7912 and 7917 Weatherhead adapters only work on pre-95 YJ's.

When I upgraded my CJ7 to YJ brake booster and MC it came with the original fittings. I notice that the rear brake lines were the same size so I used the same fitting by using a flaring tool. The front lines I got the adapter from autozone. I took in my MC and they found the adapter I needed.

I'm not sure of the year my YJ MC is from, but I did like k-linx did and took my MC in with me. They hooked me up with the right fittings.

The CJ hard lines (1/2-20 and 9/16-18 standard fittings) into the 1995 YJ master cylinder (m10x1 and m12x1 metric) inputs.

Napa should be able to help you find the adapters needed.
