Re: Rounded off Brake Pipe Union.
So need to replace the brake line from front to rear. The silly union nut is rounded off and super tight. Can I just cut the brake pipe so that I can put a closed 11m spanner end on?
Do a search on e-bay for self adjusting spanners, and check out these 'Power Grip Self Adjustable 2 Piece Pipe Wrench Set Plumber Spanner'. I know they are listed as plumbers tools, but I keep this type in my toolbox, and they are great for rounded off nuts. The harder you pull them, the tighter they get.
