I'm having trouble removing the rear brake lines from the master cylinder. I have applied penetrating oil but nothing good has happened yet (the nut started to round over). The master cylinder appears to be made of aluminum while the nuts on the brake lines appear to be steel. Can I apply heat to these connections and if so to which component? How do I replace to flare nut or can I recondition this on the vehicle?
have the same problem?
