I don't have a suitable driveway where I could do this, and I'm very noob when it comes to working on cars... A case of beer?
Or whatever fee is appropriate. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

BTW, it's the PowerGasket from NewSouth Engineering, and the stainless steel-braided brake lines (front 4) from ECS.. if it makes any difference.

I've never heard of the "PowerGasket" what does it go to exactly? Link perhaps?

I have a torque wrench and a tool set... I'll research on the torque specs.

Get back with me when you do, I'm sort of switching jobs this week and next week so I'm not 110% on my schedule yet, but Saturdays should almost always be good.

Re: Help installing gasket and ss brake lines (BiH)

not sure.. gotta reread the instructions that came with it. the thread above has some basic tips on how to install it, says i shouldn't exceed 5lbs for torque... my torque wrench ain't gonna work then, goes from 10 - 150lbs

I doubt that gasket will do a whole lot. I can help you out installing it, from what I read its not a problem. the ss lines I have never done, do you have everything?

Re: Help installing gasket and ss brake lines (BiH)

?do i have everything? tools? i got the basic 110-piece wrench-and-ratchet tool set, torque wrench 10-150lb, that's it.
brake lines didn't come with instructions, gasket came with very minimal instructions.

Brake lines came with the clips, don't think I need anything else.
Only time I have to do this is during the wk, between Monday and Thursday, b4 4pm.... I know everyone usually works during that time
Too bad I have the night shift right now. Need to do this b4 BeaveRun next wkend.
If no one can help, can anyone point me to some brake line instructions, preferrably with pictures? Thanks.
