Hose shop for making brake lines?

Discussion in 'Westside' started by ericrayl, Oct 12, 2012.


  1. Can anyone recommend a good industrial hose place that will make brake lines in Seattle...The Eastside would be better yet but that seems unlikely.

    Thanks much!
     
  2. In Portland, Oil filter services can build you any line for anything.

    I have used them for years they do good work.
     
  3. I used to use a place in Bellingham called Western Fluid Components.
    Closer than Portland anyway.

    I've used Belfair Hose and Hydraulic, both for personal vehicles and for numerous machines at work. They have always done me right.
     
  5. Thanks guys. Still hoping to find someone more local. In this case there are some rubber grommets that need to be slid onto the hose segments before crimping....I suppose I could mail the hose and cross my fingers.

    I went to them for a brake line and they were not able to help me...it was a rubber brake line for a car that attached the reservoir to the piston. Guess there is some kind of special rubber that needs to be used for DOT3 fluid.
