Can anyone tell me a good way to take the hydraulic line off the back of the wheel cylender. None of my wrenches fit it tight enough to move the nut before spinning around the head of the nut. I also have a wrench for taking of hydraulic lines it says "12" on it.. it seems to fit tight but when I turn it, it spins around the head. can someone help me before my nut becomes a perfect circle because i dont know who to take it off

You'll need a 10mm (?) flare nut wrench and some PB Blaster. Soak it with the PB first (overnight is optimal) and then try the flare nut wrench.

Sometimes they're rusted on like hell. In this case, try a good pair of vice grips that has a good solid set of jaws.

If all else fails, you might have to replace the line.

furthermore

And once it breaks loose, start wiggling it back and forth a little at a time, keeping your eye peeled that the flare nut is not frozen solid to the steel line.

If it is, the steel line will twist and break.
