Holy cow! Was that all meant to be one huge sentence? I got confused when reading about a "main hose" and brakes rubbing. Can you elaborate on those? If you retype that with some punctuation, and proofread it, I think I'll be able to help. As it is, it can be read so many different ways and most don't make sense.
I have to head out of town right now but I'll check back as soon as I get home tonight.
