    1 metre of 6mm O.D x 1mm wall brass tube is approx £8 so will get some of that & use short bits of silicone tube for connections.

    That stuff does not bend very well, tends to crack. If its for straight bits then fine. I use brake pipe, bends and fits the rubbers.

    Got the buts off fleabay Guy, nice n cheap I did look on the other site to see if they did the bits but they didn't.
    I do need to pay you for the Aeroquip hose tho - sorry! been madness at work this week

    Gerry, I thought brass would be ok? got a mandrel bender for it and thought I could heat it to anneal it first? I don't need sharp bends just needs to follow the box/bellhousing angle and bellhousing/inlet angle, silicone hose after that both ends.

    Brake pipe (got a load here) is 2mm smaller O.D than the fittings both ends (modulator and inlet fittings)

    Just tried bending the brass tube and got a lovely 90 degree bend with no issues or cracking

    Good result! Mine is rubber tube but with a wall thickness the same as the bore. I can't measure it as the car's not here. Works fine but I bet yours will look soooo much better!
    If I wasn't meant to go that fast, the pedal would only go half way!

    ^^^^Doh! that would have been ideal.

    I searched all over the net for tubing, could not find anything (except copper) longer than 600-900mm except the brass tube in B&Q.

    Never mind, the brass looks nice n shiny

    This is how it looked after bending up;



    and fitted to gearbox;



    and plumbed to inlet manifold.



    Still need to T into this bit for the vacuum gauge.
