Thanks Steve, Ive read your detailed write up a number of times. Well done.
Apparently I had a brain fart each time I read the above quote from your OP.
Now that I'm researching Brake Line replacement, it's pretty glaring.
Was it the metal brake line you clamped?
If so, what was the resolution to the destruction?
Have you realized a non-destructive technique? Threaded plug, cap, etc.?
Thanks again for making us non-mechanics' lives a little easier.
