The last comment about how to splice is dangerous and illegal in canada. The compression union is not a strong enough to support the pressure and maintain support through the constant use of the brakes. It is legal however to splice the line with a union block. You would have to cut out the bad section, and install new fittings on the existing good line. You will have to double flare the lines the same as original. You can purchase a ready made piece of steel line already flared that you can install between the two existing lines using 2 junction blocks. This is the only safe way to splice the line. Depending on the vehicle it's not that difficult to replace the entire line, just time consuming. Bending is an art, and flaring the lines would have to be done anyway.

Re: 1995 Ford Escort LX Brake lines
A piece of steel brake line can be spliced into the broken line, but you'll need to make a clean cut at both ends of the place you choose to remove the damaged line, using an 'Imp' pipe-cutter, then use compression fittings (available where you purchase replacement brake line) and make sure they're tightened properly. Not too loose, not too tight. Just enough to crimp the brass fitting onto the steel line to hold the pressure. Try NAPA or a local auto parts supply store.

I had the exact same problem. To fix it right click the manga studio icon go to properties-compatibility. Set everything under settings to on, apply-OK, then go on manga studio, it should mess up your screen resolution, don't worry about that. Close the program, your screen resolution should go back to normal, go back on to the properties-compatibility screen and set everything under settings to off. Now when you go on to manga studio it should work fine.
Plug your turn table into your input sound card (line in on your sound card) Use a program like Nero Media Player, or any digital recording program ( Sound Blaster or Wave Studio) Tell it to save the file as mp3, that simple.
If you are an experienced Computer user and have a Wave Recording program such as Audacity [free] or Adobe Audition [$$$] you can do this:
1. Your record player must have a LINE OUT.....usually go from your stereo receiver [You can get turntables with internal Line outputs...this is what I have...via ebay]
2. Output from Receiver [turntable] must be the small [headphone like plug...used to be called Sony Plug...now it's the 3/32nd I believe....
3. plug this into the line in of the sound card....it's the arrow that points INTO the little hole. Now the sound card can read the signal.....but wait...!
4. You must enable the little box in the sound card properties called "Line IN"....put the check mark there.
5. How to get to the Properties? Bottom right of screen there should be a speaker ICON....double click that. Then go to File....Properties....record.....then look for the LINE IN....check it. If you don't see it. Then you have to ask someone in person to help you.
6. If you get it working. Great!
7 Now open a recording program and press record....then play the record. You should see a wave file going across the screen. Then save it as an MP3 file.
8. Advanced tip: if you record at a rate of 59594 instead of 44100 then you can play the 33 1/3 speed at 45 RPM and save about 30% time in recording from a record. Then convert back to 44100 and it will be normal speed. I do this on ALL my LP to MP3 recordings...

You may need to shorten the brake cable by loosening the thumbscrew locknut, extending the adjuster and re-tightening the locknut. If there isn't enough adjustment, you'll have to shorten the cable by loosening its locknut, shorten the cable by about 1/4" at a time, and re-adjusting your thumbscrew adjustments until the brakes are effective. Also make sure your new shoes are lined up with the sides of the wheels and you may want to lightly sand the surface of the new shoes, just to roughen them a bit so that they seat faster.
If you were familiar enough with brakes to make repairs, I would suggest that you probably wouldn't have posted this question. If you really want to learn to replace your own brakes, I would suggest that you buy a Chilton's Manual for your car. They're definitely worth the money. Your car is nothing different or significantly different from most cars, when replacing pads or shoes, but you really should machine the rotors and drums if you replace the linings. If they are beyond specs, they will need to be replaced. By that I mean if your rotors are too thin or if the drums are too worn (inside diameter too large). If you've ***** done brakes before, you need to have a qualified mechanic (preferably ASE certified) at least check what you've done before re-assembly. I was ASE certified for over 20 years, and I've even made my share of mistakes. Thank *** that those always showed up in the test drive. Had anyone had a collision and gotten hurt or died as a result of my mistake, I might ***** have forgiven myself. The most important safety feature on your car is the brakes. Don't compromise your safety or that of anyone else who might ride with you or drive your car. Get qualified help or take it to a qualified repair shop. Dealerships are the best. ** one knows your car better than they do, the repairs will be done right the first time and they will notice anything else that you need to be made aware of. GM and Ford are very serious about training their personnel (I've ***** worked at a Chrysler dealership) and won't let un-trained personnel work on your car.
Hi there Grusm,
It seems from what you have wriiten, your recording setttings have gone back to playing mode on your computer. Try the followings see if it sorts the problems you are having:-
Click Twice or so on the speaker on the right hand side of START manu at the bottom right hand. A speaker volume control panel will open up displaying volume control,wave,sw synth,phone line,Aux volume,video volume, mic volume,line In and audio in.
Make sure on the bottom of this panel volume is not ticked muted. if it is untick it.
On the top Manu you Options and Help. Click on Options
Select properties and Click on it, when it opens up change the setting from Playback to Recording by clicking in the round ring in front of the Recording sign. once you done that you can select the controls on the volume control panel to your requirement. Keep this volume panel minimise it while you are recording the sound, so if it needs altering you have it there infront of you at the bottom on the start manu. I hope this helped.
