View Full Version : BJ'S BRAKE LINES?
03-10-2008, 07:45 PM
I WANT TO KNOW IF ANYONE CAN TELL ME THE THREAD SIZE & COUNT ON BJ'S 6" LIFT EXTENDED BRAKE LINES. I PUT THE LIFT ON REASONTLY ALONG WITH AN EDELBROCK MANIFOLD/CARB. IT HAD BEEN SITTING FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS WAITING FOR THE TRANNY WHICH WAS GETTING REBUILT. I STARTED HER UP SHE RAN FINE BUT THEN THE TRANSFERCASE GAVE OUT. I SWAPED IT & THAT SEEMS TO BE HOLDING UP BUT MY BRAKES ARNT WORKING PROPERLY. I VACUME BLEED THEM BUT ONLY GET STRONG PRESSURE AT THE LEFT FRONT. I FIGURE ITS EITHER THE PERPORTIONING VALVE OR THE HARD LINES CLOGGED. IM GOING TO REPLACE THEM WITH AN AFTERMARKET PERPORTIONING VALVE WITH BUILT IN PRESSURE GAUGE & STAINLESS STEEL FLEXIBLE LINES. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT SIZE FITTINGS TO GET TO MATCH UP WITH THE BJ'S LINES.

I already emailed them & awaiting a response, I just figured some wise one hear would know. & I stupidly trashed the originals when I was doing the teardown, I've called the local dealers no help there..
please help if you can..
I have been away from her & here for a few years on deployments ( used to be shooter6) lost my password.
my ex kept the computer house & dog I kept the JEEP, her loss!!!!

Hey shooter - the IFSJA users billyrb and TPICherokee - ARE BJ's Offroad :thumbsup:
My brakes lacked alot before I installed BJ's extended lines on, but I knew the vacuum bleeding is pathetic. There simply is no effective economical alternative for good old fashioned two person bleeding. My wife pumped while I bled. Oh man, that sentence did NOT sound good! LOL :D
Anyhow, after a thorough bleeding my brakes are adequate now, but I'm still planning on hydroboost before long.

thanks bluegill. Yeah I know that why I was hoping they could answer. I had my ex help me bleed them once, She never got over that:(

Anyone who may need to know the answer in the future, the size is 3/8 by 24.. Hope this helps someone else out in the future..:drivin:
