In the dark hours of last night, I believe I stripped (or uncovered that 
the DPO had stripped) the connection between the master cylinder's brake 
pipe and the 4-way brake pipe union.  The coupling bolt on the pipe just 
turns and does not "bite" into the 4-way union threads.  The 4-way union 
is rather inaccessible and I am fearful that if I disconnect the other 
three connections to remove and inspect the union, I will find that they 
too are bodged.  Are there any "tricks of the trade" to get the coupling 
bolt to seat in the union threads without removing of the union, or, God 
forbid, replacing both the union and  the brake pipe for $75.  Or will I 
have to just put the time in to remove them for inspection and 
replacement.  I am obviously trying to save work (i.e. precious free 
time), which is less than optimal.  But I want to get in the last few 
weeks of good driving weather.  Thank you.
