Ok, I bought this electric linelock from Aggro's recommendation. I hooked it up, and hit the brakes, and brake fluid squirted out of the fitting I have an arrow pointing to. After taking it back apart, it became obvious what the problem was. See the next pic:

The brakeline doesn't seat against anything. So what kind of fitting do I need? <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

Lance, food for thought..I have a line lock simalar to that..according to all the info. I can find..they are a limited use lock at best. My friend put his to the test..He left it turned on for about 90 sec in his driveway..The bronco started rolling backwards and the Micro unit was very hot to the touch. Some actually say they are not to be left on for more than 60 sec. Just a heads up! <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">

Lance, the part is called a "seat". I have the same line lock and have left mine on for hours without any problems.

Neckster,
What kind of line locks are those.
Where do ya get em, and how much.
Im thinking about setting up a pair of them to be used as cutting brakes as well as E brakes at the rear.

Mine will be used as only a "cutting brake" for competition use. Parking brakes are <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> and I have no use for an actual parking brake. There was a thread about this unit a couple of weeks ago, and Aggro said that he has left his on for weeks without trouble, fyi.

I got it from Jeg's for about $40.

EXCEPT.....If you leave them on a long time...Your battery will die!! Looks like the board is quicker than me. Good to see you got the right fitting. Or at least a pic of it!

That depends, is it power to open, or power to close? If it were power to open, could be a good deterant.
