I initially ran all the brake pipes and clutch pipe quite early on in the chassis part of the build. It was midway through last year when I realised that the latest AK Gen III rolling chassis appeared to have a larger size clutch pipe. I had a quick chat with Jon and he confirmed this. Great!
I managed to find 1/4" copper pipe fairly easily but fixings were another matter, let alone a flexi as all brake/clutch flexi's in those lovey colours are all 3/16". Finally I contacted Speedflow (www.speedflow.co.uk) and they were happy to make a 1/4" (dash 4 hose) teflon flexi for me.
Re-running the pipe was relatively straight forward apart from the face that all the pipe hangers were for 3/16" pipe which meant I had to enlarge them a little.
I had to replace the 3/16" bulkhead fitting with a 1/4" substitute. Fortunately I was able to enlarge the hole in the bracket just enough for the larger bulkhead to fit.
