If your talking about the hearts lines that come off the master cylinder you won't find it you have to make it yourself. You have to buy a line from any parts store and cut and bend it to your needs. I always reuse the end connectors if they're in good condition to get a good seal sometimes the replacement ends don't seal properly and leak. Good luck

No brakes on a 1986 honda accord


Did you get a good bleed with fluid coming out at all four wheels? If they bled good, and the pedal still goes to the floor, you need to check the brake master cylinder-it is probably shot with an internal leak. An internal leak will not let fluid pressure build up, so no brakes.

Did you keep the brake fluid reservoir from going dry while bleeding? If it went real low, air might have got back into the lines.

It is not uncommon when bleeding brakes on an older vehicle for the master cylinder to suddenly develop an internal leak and require replacement . Here's why: pushing the pedal all the way to the floor causes the master's piston to push in farther than ever before. The rubber cups then travel over a section of the cylinder not usually touched by the cups-old fluid can develop a crud there and when the piston pushes over it, the cups can get ruined. To avoid this when bleeding brakes, put a short piece of 2X4 wood block under the pedal. Then the pedal will not extend the master's piston beyond it's normal travel. Of course on a new master cylinder, you do not have to do this. A new master cylinder does require bench bleeding before installing, however, to ensure no air pockets develop from there.

97 saturn brake problems. Replaced master cylinder, both front calipers and rotors. Replaced both rear wheel cilinders shoes and drums. Also replaced all rubber brake lines yet no pedal after bleeding....


Get another master cylinder,If you want to really find out if the master cylinder is goo open one of the lines have someone pump the brake,with your finger over the open cylinder line you will have pressure coming out, and if you feel vacuum has your assistant releases the pedal that a sure sign the master cylinder is not working,Also when you have a master cylinder before you install you need to bench bleed it

1986 5.0 brake problems...replaced brake booster twice and master cylinder once....now there is no power to the brakes...the brakes are stiff while the care is off....but when the car is on the brake pedal...


Did you check and adjust the push rod that comes out of the booster, and in turn pushes the rod in the master cylinder??
If its too long, the piston in the master cylinder won't move back far enough to pull brake fluid in.
If it's too short, it won't contact the piston at all.

It doesn't move as much as you might think.
If instructions came with the new booster, they may address this, and how to adjust it.

What wrench do i need to remove the brake pads on a 1986 chevy celebrity


You'll need some metric size wrenches. Usually a 13mm and a 15mm or 16mm. Some also use an allen head socket. Auto Zone sells a rack of 5 allen sockets to fit most autos using that set up.

93 chevy lumina the brake lines aren't getting fluid


Open the bleeder screws on your brake, and stick a gas line hose on the bleeder screw. Put the other end in a clear bottle of brake fluid, and pump the brake till all the air bubbles quit coming out. Then tighten the bleeder. If no bubbles come, you may have a faulty master cylinder.
