This week it's time to replace both the front and rear brake lines and the
clutch line on our 67B. The front ones are both cracked just below the top
nut, so I might as well do it all. I need to replace the defective brake light
switch also.
Having never done any of this before, I can use any advice others have. Should
I pump all the fluid out before I start?
I'll read Bentley's and check several websites before attempting the job, but
just thought I'd ask for pointers that might not be in the book. I know this
has been covered on the list, and I'll check the archives, too. I'm going to
use my wife, instead of an Ezi-Bleed system. She doesn't cost as much and
hopefully won't leak all over the paint job.

BTW, I found out last week that a wire spoke wrench will fit the brake
adjusting nuts and gives one good torque.

Thanks in advance,
