HI, you will need to make them the line size will be 3mm metric or you can use 3/16 standard.. also these line will not have a SAE double flare, they will use a bubble flair. I hope this helps happy bending.

Where exactly is the orifice tube on a 1987 chevrolet g30 van?

Its a liquid line an start from condenser to evaporator. Following the small line you will find connection before the evaporator and the pipe have marks about 3 in.from the connection. Evacuate the freon and disconnect the pipe. You will need special tool to remove the office tube or nidell nose plier. Twist and pull till the orfice tube is out. If the tube brake insert long wood screw and pull . Worst case ask your auto parts store for repair kit. Is 5in. Replacement set. Cut the pipe and install the new one. Very carefully follow the direction of the new orfice tube. Vacuum the system and recharge.
Good luck

I have a 1995 jeep wrangler and my front brake calipers have started locking up on me ive put two new calipers on two flexi pipes on two new discs on new master cylinder on one new brake pipe cant think...

Do you have AB? Try disconnecting the harness to the ABS unit if you do, it might give you an idea which direction to go. If not, there must be a kink in a line somewhere.

How do you change the rear brake line that goes between each wheel, the brake line that is metal..

Don't do this unless you have skill at and tools to repair flair pipe. You will need the special tubing wrenches as well. The fittings/pipe are probably rusted and - frankly - it will be a night mare getting the repair done ... and then the 'fun' begins when you try to get the air out of the line.
