I have an 81 Chevy pickup C10 that I was replacing the brake hose on. In the process of trying to take the brake line loose from it I started to twist the line when I thought I had finally started to break them loose from each other.
I was able to go to a local pull-a-part place and get the replacement brake line I need, but once again I wasn't able to get it disconnected from the hose so I just cut the hose and pulled it through the frame so that the line was intact. What is the best way for me to loosen the brake line from the hose?
I also was not able to remove the brake line currently on my truck from the spot where the brake lines intersect ( I have no idea what the part is called.) Also what is the best way to clean the brake line before I install it? I believe I've been told rubbing alcohol would be the best.
