Sent: Tuesday, January 16, 2007 10:13 PM Subject: brake hoses
In an annual inspection with my 1965 Bonanza - the subject of replacing my 1986 date code brake lines came up. I was shown a book that stated that all flammable fluids that are carried by rubber hoses cannot be older than 10 years, period. What do you say to that, please?
Thanks

Our shop policy is to change out non-Teflon hoses each 8 years for engine fuel / oil and each 15 years for airframe hoses (brakes included). Roger
