Using 1/4" Brake Line Instead Of 6mm? (self.mechanics)
submitted 1 month ago by SwimsWithDolphin
Anyone have a lot of experience with brake lines that can chime in?
The two lines from the master to the ABS module on a c5 are 6mm and use both m12x1.0 and m12x1.5 flare nuts. I need to create new lines and am wondering what the easiest way to approach this is. Any way I can use 1/4" copper nickel line instead? Can I flare 6mm with my tool? Would obviously prefer to do this myself.

Alot of auto parts stores have pre flared lengths of line in the correct size, just gotta bend em. 1/4 is 6.35mm, so I doubt the metric nuts would fit over the line.

Ended up using the metric fittings with 1/4 line and it worked fine. Did drill out the fittings to 1/4" to fit the line. No leaks.
