    venhill brake lines

    I've seen these brake lines on ebay & wondered if anyone has bought them & whether they are any good?
    Thanks

    I have just bought a full set (inc. clutch) from Venhill direct and they fitted perfectly.

    I went with the Powerhose Plus lines to ensure the banjo alignment was spot on.

    A factor that some of you may not know about pre-made braided hoses from the likes of Hel/Goodridge etc is that the positioning of the banjo ends relative to each other can be adjusted to make 'em line up properly ?

    All you need to do is grip the swaged part of the braided hose carefully with pliers and use a pen (or screwdriver if you are a rough arse) in the eye of the banjo to reposition the banjo end. The ends are tight (as they are meant to be) but can be moved through 360 degrees with not a lot of force.

    DON'T use pliers on the banjo end as you can damage the sealing face. It can be done with just a biro

    Surprisingly, many dealers don't know that either. The guys at Hel showed/told me how simple it is
