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.

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