Re: Rounded off Brake Pipe Union.

Did you use a proper brake pipe spanner.??

I would make the new pipe up before chopping.

Once you cut, there's no going back.

Try and get a single hex 11mm socket or even 10mm on it if you can.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
