CMC Flare Nut Replacement?


Recommended Posts

While replacing the clutch master cylinder, I accidentally rounded off the flare nut which connects the clutch line to the CMC.

 

:doh:

 

Any idea where to obtain a replacement?

 

I might look at the junk yard, but chances are probably low of finding one since it's copper, and scrap copper goes for a fortune these days.

 

Any idea where I might find one new?

 

Also, I'm looking at just trimming the end off the clutch line and putting a new flare on the end. Are there any problems with this, besides the obvious risk of the flare not being properly formed?

If you can't find a replacement line, they make a flaring tool for brake lines to do this properly.
