    Default Boatmate trailer brakes problem

    Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you know what size bolt I need to reattach one of the brake lines to the left trailer side wheel brake. I walked by it the other day and saw that something was hanging. Got under there and it was the brake line. Here are two pics to help describe what I'm talking about better:

    That is a special Banjo bolt that the fluid actually runs through. Since you're going to have to bleed the brakes anyway, you may want to just take the other one off and bring it in with you as a sample.
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    Yup, exactly what he said. Most auto parts stores will have it, if not a brake shop will.


    PWI as usual...

    Make sure you get the copper washers that go on each side of the square metal block.

    A note on the copper washers, I just replaced a broken brake line on my single axle trailer. I went to three diffrent auto parts retailers and was unable to find that size washer. I then went to a brake shop and was told the washer seems to be a custom size as he had never seen one like it before. Now I'm not a car guy by any means, but I thought it strange I couldn't find the proper size anywhere I looked. I ended up ordering the parts from www.boatmateparts.com. Stupid little washers cost $4/each. If you have trouble finding the right size bolt, I would email Jerry at boatmate.

    Thanks, I will do that. Do you happen to have his e-mail address?

    jerry@boatmatetrailers.com He was very helpful with sending part numbers for items that can't be found on the parts site.

    Good Luck
