Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500
I need to change out the front left and right brake hoses and the pit arm assembly in a 86 chevy half ton with a 350 how hard is it change these items and can i do it myself
The only thing i can see you would have a problem with is the pitmen arm, for that you will need a special tool for that, it can be rented at autozone or someplace like that. Be aware they can be a bear to get off. you might be further ahead to have a shop do that for you, and you can do the lines.
The break hoses are fairly easy if they come loose from the hard line, the thing to do is to get some good penatrating oil lik PB blaster and spray the fittings where the rubber end meats the hard end and let it set for a while so it can penatrate, you will also need line wrenches as to not round off the fittings. its up to you if you want to tackel this project or not. This at least give you an idea what your up agenst.
