Bazooka Bubble Gum?......... Seriously though, replace all rubber lines it's cheap. Don't cheap out on your ability to stop.

I've got a new in package stock rubber line if you want to stop by and pick it up.

I don't need it anymore

I have the ability to spell correctly, it's just that the autocorrect on my iPad will not permit it.

Jeeps have break(s) lines?

Replace what's leaking... IMO

Rubber or Steel side? If it's the rubber part I have one I can forward on to you, of course you pay for shipping. A member, the one above me recently sent me his fuel pump for free. Great guy, and now I need to start paying that great deed forward.

BTW Benderff. Got it all working. Used my pump, your top section and all is well. Can't thank you enough for your kind deed. Thanks!

You guys, don't you know Teflon tape is more appropriate for high pressure stuff.
