Found someone for clutch line replacement

J.P.M. Hydraulics Inc. of Lowell Mass. They were able to reuse the old fittings with a braided stainless steel line and crimps. Originally I wanted it to be all stainless but I am very happy with how it turned out. I was able to stop in from nearby R.I. and they made it up while I waited. About 1 1/2 hours. You can also send them your old part and they will replicate it. I only did the lower half. The top is in great shape so less work, less money. I also thought it would be best to keep that coupling rather than have a one piece. Dimensions for that line are 37" in length, the banjo is a 6mm, not the 8mm I previously stated, and the female coupling part is 10 mm fyi. Price: $69 BMW price $169 I don't expect any problems but I will post if I do.

Re: Found someone for clutch line replacement

Guess I'll be looking them up tomorrow. I just tried to replace my gear indicator switch on the tranny and as soon as I touched the clutch line at the slave cylinder, it started leaking.

You said they reused your fittings. I am not sure if my issue is the fitting or the line going into the fitting. I'm letting it drain now and will pull it off tonight or tomorrow.

They are on the wrong side of the country for me to drive to. I'm hoping I can send it in. Wish they could just make one up and sent it to me.

EDIT: I bit the bullet and just ordered up the BMW one. Painful to pay $160 for it, but I know it will fit. Equally painful was the $125 for the chrome piece on the right rear bag. Bugged me that the previous owner laid it down and scuffed it up. Figured I might as well feel the pain all way and get the replacement.

Re: Found someone for clutch line replacement

I used a local Orlando "hose" shop 4 years ago for a brake line.

They made a new stainless steel braided line with new banjo joints

I think this is a standard offering from most shops like this.

Re: Found someone for clutch line replacement

I know how you feel Richard. I just had to bite the bullet on Evans trunk latch handle replacement. I am sure it's worth it. Considering how intricate it is, he must of put a lot of effort into developing this replacement. On the other hand I just purchased an Audiovox mediabridge, aka Dice, for $70 on Ebay to replace my cd changer. As a friend of mine use to say, sometimes you get the chicken, sometimes just feathers.

Re: Found someone for clutch line replacement

I think the problem with the clutch line vs a brake line is the 6mm banjo with the compound bend. I went to and called a lot of shops before I found one that said they could do it.

I never was much for tupperware parties. Yeah, mine has some battle scars but then most weren't put there by me. Having said that, there are a few cracked pieces I would someday like to replace but they still work just fine for now. I may try to fiberglass them and repaint. Till then, I won't be entering any beauty contests.

I had to buy the $54 foot brake line for the control circuit. It is only like 7 inches long.
