Formula have their own fittings at the caliper so you will need to use their line.So ordered myself some Formula Cura 4 brakes to upgrade from the Shimano MT420, 4-Piston on my ebike. I have bled brakes plenty of times but never done an internally routed install or cut lines hence the stupid question's post.
- Will I be able to use the existing shimano hoses or need to swap them out?
- If the hoses can be used are different brand mineral oils compatible or do I need to flush the lines to use formula mineral oil (purchased with the brakes)?
- Is it worth buying hydraulic brake needle driver tool for the job ZTTO Ali express needle driver or will a vice and large hammer be sufficient
Thanks Litenbror sounds like I have a plan just hope I can avoid the confessions thread when it comes time to internally route the hoses.Formula have their own fittings at the caliper so you will need to use their line.
I don't have the formula mineral oil but was assured that Shimano would be fine but have a lower temperature tolerance.
Hammer and vice, it's how I did it.
I can't remember if mine came with the levers on or off but everything I needed to shorten the hoses was in the box.Thanks Litenbror sounds like I have a plan just hope I can avoid the confessions thread when it comes time to internally route the hoses.
