I have late 98 LWB Trooper (4JX1 engine). The brake pipes need replacing on
Has anyone done this themeselves?
How difficult ?
I have not replaced brake pipes before but have friends in the trade who can
show me how to make off the ends.
What diameter pipe?
Is the diameter measured internal or external?
What material should I get?
What thread are the ends?
Are there lots of different threads and sizes?
I have a specific query regarding the offside front wheel arch.
I can readily identify the pipe going to the front offside brake cylinder,
there are two more pipes which come down, one pipe appears to come from the
ABS unit and the other from a T piece on the front of the brake master
cylinder. They enter what appears to be two right angled unions fitted to
the chassis a picture of which is here:
http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/easttest/Car.htm by where the front o.s. brake
pipe terminates into the rubber hose. Two pipes come out of the rear of
these unions and would appear to follow the main chassis back the car. I
believe they are going to the Load Sensor Valve (Feed and return??).
Can anyone confirm whether this is the case.
