Re: leaky brake fittings

One lesson I learned years ago.....
Always use a tubing cutter when cutting brake line. A hacksaw may be quicker but the line is prone to leak after double flaring.
Just sayin'.........

Re: Ignition key

Just a little info on key blanks.
Original Hurd blanks are preferred but they are sometimes hard to get and often pricey.
Older aftermarket blanks are ok as well but they can be expensive too.

Re: Open 1951 trunk without a key?

I have never been able to "pick" a Ford/Hurd lock.
