Aaahh… it is a banjo! I had an idea it might be but wasn’t too sure. Thanks.
No, it seems quite tough although it isn’t labelled as heavy duty to be honest and I haven’t put them on or used them (perhaps it’s a bit premature to judge).
But seeing as they are really only for water and dust proofing the braided steel, they should be okay.
Why didnt you clean the banjo’s fully? Get the gunk clear and all polished up.
Yes, new olives would have been best (I hope you have new copper washers?)
Personally I would clean as they are now and fit them. If they leak…then you can take them off and do it again.
The sleeving i think is awesome. Great idea. Love the fact how simple it is, even fact that you can get heatshrink in most colours meaning the lines can be customised into different colours! You could almost do stripes of two different colours all the way on the.
Yea, I took the photos before cleaning out the rust from the banjoes, but it’s gone now.
I could have a go at them with the polishing bit of a Dremel, but to be honest, they won’t need to be shiny shiny, it’s not my thing.
My mechanic friend has loads of copper washers lying around, I’ll ask him about the olives though.
Thanks, however I have yet to test them under ‘working conditions’, so I’m not sure how they’ll do.
Also, I can’t actually see many people being in this position (having brake lines without plastic sleeving).
But it’s nice to know I suppose.
