Question about 1996 Mercury Cougar XR7
Replacing all brake lines&hoses due to rust. need to know fitting sizes to begin this project without dismantling everthing, (only car).ex.:brake bleeder screw supposedly 3/8" 24 thread 1" length.no help avail. to me without bringing in parts which ends my transportation. great car! any other help you can give me for this project would be great,will be replacing with copper lines,etc. i have tools and yr.'s shade-tree experiance.re:96' cougar xr-7 3.8 with rear drum brakes
What i usually do if the money is available is purchase the brake lines in all sizes from the auto parts store and return any unused parts to the auto parts store,for a refund. they usually know the sizes you need ; you could also do the front first then the rear, or replace one line to get the size, also need a tubing bender to bend the brake lines, 'bleeder screws are usually three choices or go to ford or mercury, once you get started its not too bad, beware of compression fittings (unsafe to do it that way) Good Luck .
