    I NEED HELP!

    I can't unscrew the solenoid from the master cylinder, sprayed some penetrating lube on the threads but still no go. I am trying to swap out my master cylinder but OF COURSE it won't go smoothly.
    Any ideas from the gurus? I've already wasted over an hour and a half. I need to get this done and get my brakes bled for tomorrow's trip so I am desperate.

    Default Trailer master cylinder does not maintain fluid level

    Ok I got the solenoid off but the threaded screw stayed on the master cylinder and I can't figure out to to get this thing off. Any insight boys? If I had to could I get this at a hardware store?

    Looks like a small pipe fitting. Maybe the plumbing section at Lowes.

    My father said it is a nipple, and sure enough it was. lowes had them after I found out HD did not. Could only find brass though so used Teflon tape and was careful not to strip threads.

    Let's tell you, whomever the f**k was the genius that decided the hose and fitting to screw into the solenoid is a got damn retard!!! This was the biggest pain in the ass as the hose just curls up as you're tightening it and creates just a mess! So stupid IMO.

    But it's all put back together and I just have to bleed the brakes now.
