Default MCP Brake Rebuild Questions

You could buy that 3/16" Nylon 2500psi Hydraulic Brake Line from your local hydraulic-supply store, or lots of different online shops like amazon or this racekart shop: http://www.out2win.com/catalog/brake.html

You could reuse all your brass fittings, you'd just need to buy 4 new matching Ferrules.

And if it was me, I'd use a cotter pin or a Barry clip to secure the pin on your brake linkage.
