    Brake Pipe Flares

    Hi all,

    My 1985 V12 HE has, for some strange reason, imperial calipers on the front and metric ones on the rear. I'm guessing '85 was the year when they switched to metric, but never expected them to mix both types on the same car!
    Anyway, the question is regards flares. For the front calipers, I flared the pipe using SAE and DIN singe/double flared spec tooling. I'm hoping the flares for the rear will be the same type and that the only difference lies in the type of thread for the unions that join the pipe to the caliper. Can some kind soul reassure me on this point?
    Thanks.

    Well, apparently the flares are the same regardless, so I shall proceed on that basis and report back later if this should turn out to be not in fact the case.
