Rear Wheel Lock

Hi-

I should mention that rear brakes have rubber hoses as well as the fronts.
Wheel lock could be due to these being constricted.

Steve,
in the aircraft industry, we use stainless braided teflon lines.
They are "lifetime" lines, in other words they will last a lifetime.
We never have problems these lines. They come in a 3/16 size,
called -3 "dash 3" or AN 3.
On my car I just bought new rubber lines from Gordons, but I seriously
looked at changing to the teflon lines.
The banjo fittings and lines are all replaceable in a AN or aircraft standard.
If I was keeping a perticular Amphi forever, I would change the brakes to AN.
Maybe my next car.
Anyway, thanks for the ride at Celina.
