1981 Chevy Citation 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 138450 miles
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 made of steel. Can I apply heat to these connections and if so to which component? Is there a way to recondition the flare nut or do I need to cut it off and splice in a new connection?
