Line lock

I am having a problem finding the fittings to adapt my 1/8npt line lock to toyota metric.

Any suggestions or sources for the adapters???
Does anyone make a metric fitting line lock?

Here is the line lock I have.

Are you using steel brake tubing? Just put some standard fittings on it

Only metric brake fittings on my truck are the front calipers steel braided hoses connections.

what he said. its so simple people tend to over look this.

out of your master cylinder run a metric or standard fitting (depends on your mc) then to your line lock, put on a standard fitting.


then from line lock put standard to metric

Yes the lines are steel. The problem seems to be the 1/8 npt. I am not finding a fitting with 1/8 npt threads that I can flare. Also it is not an inverted flare. Might be a bubble flare.

I am beginning to think i am overthinking this thing

the brake fitting doesnt go straight into the line lock (if its like mine from jegs) it goes into an standard adapter that goes into the line lock

Small little brass NPT to brakeline adapter, can be found in almost any auto parts store.

Now I think i understand.
There were no adapters included with the line lock.
I need an adapter to go from 1/8 npt to 3/16 double flare.
put a 3/16 brake nut on my existing line and double flare. Then repeat for the outlet.

I found some 1/8 NPT fittings with 3/16 compression fittings on the other end for mine.

Looked like these but stainless instead.

This seems real easy. Is it working?
I am a little concerned about that type fitting on brakes.(now that I am older) I have repaired a broken brake line, with a compression coupling before and it worked fine for years. (when I was young and broke)
