If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Check The Brake Lines Dummy!

(Not my pic but very similar issue)

Last Saturday I purchased a 1995 F-150 from a fairly meticulous one owner household. The truck has rust in the usual places. One look at her and you can tell every reasonable attempt was made to keep it her good shape.

The one item I failed to check were the metal brake lines.

And today, the failure..

The line for the rear brakes that runs the length of the truck ruptured on me. Oddly, every other brake line on the truck is new..

Well, shit.. Guess what I'll be doing Saturday..
