I can not access the flare nut on the frame side of the rear brake line. Here's where I've been on this:
- Jacked up, on stands, rear wheels removed
- Pass. side axle bumper removed
- tubing wrench will grip but no clearance to turn from any position
- tubing crows foot will grip but no clearance for ratchet, swivel, extension of any combination or size drive

Is there some secret trick to this because it is sure looking like the options are drop the fuel tank, take out the bed bolts and jack that up or cut a window in a box end and put fire to the handle and bend up a custom wrench. If anyone has run in to this I could use some advice. Thanks

Picture of what you're talking about (or as close as you can get of it) to help aid in the assistance.

Lol you really think he would tell anyone, ahh yes Mr. Peterson I was taken a piss and everything got dark like there was an eclipse, when I look back to see what was making the shade when WHAM!! Cock hit me right in the face. I don't know whose it was but we could match up the bruise.

This is the fitting where the hard line is joined to the flex line going down to the differential/axle?

Yes sir Mike, thats the one. I'm about to start on that again today. I'll get some pics when I get it jacked up and the wheels back off.

Thanks Mike. I have the FSM and for some reason never bothered to look it up there. I'm 'bout 99% convinced I can cut an inch or so off a tubing wrench and get at it. The others were still at factory torque and came off without a struggle. 36 years and 294,000 miles...... brake hoses are the last on my list of things to do before I feel comfortable driving this thing around.
