Hello, can someone help me with the tube nut sizes and flare type (bubble, double) of 1 through 7 in the attached pictures?

Some of the threads I read seem to indicate that @mrblaine has posted a picture like this and the corresponding tube nut sizes somewhere but I am unable to find it.

I have a 2001 Jeep 2.5L TJ. No ABS.

I am confused. I am paying attention to the thread. I really don’t see anyone answering what the sizes of tube nut 4 and 6 are. If anything there are inconsistencies in this forum about the sizes of these nuts so I was just trying to clarify for myself and for future users.

Forgive my naivety if I didn’t understand any of your messages that had encoded information.

Read post #5 again, slowly this time. I said I would get you the rest of the info later that day. You blew right by that and asked for others to step in and finish what I said I would do. Okay fine, someone else can do it for you then. Or, you say thanks, looking forward to the rest of the info.

Master ports which correspond to the port plugs in the above bags, are bubble flare.

Do you get it now? If not here it is in a nutshell

You asked for help and a member that knows more about brakes than the rest of the forum combined gives you a shit ton of info that was way more helpful than myself or most other members would have the patience to post.


You then took that information and instead of exercising a little patience and gratitude, drug your nuts across the forums chin.

It's a respect and gratitude thing..there is not another forum you would have received that much credible Information that quickly.

You are newer and you will get a feel for how things work around here soon.

I completely understand that this is a community and all the members are here to help each other due to their passion for jeeps. I do appreciate that and have gratitude for that. You can see it in my posts here and in other forums that I am thankful to each and every response i get for my questions. I want to get this out of the way because it is not the issue and I am just going to ignore nonsensical comments from people like P Man.

Where I come from “I'll have to get my port plugs out and see what the 2 in the master are.” does not mean “I would get you the rest of the info later that day.” It means that @mrblaine may have to do additional work to get the information I need. While I completely appreciate and respect that fact that he is willing to do it, I thought it would just be easier if somebody else already has the information and can provide it.

It is a simple case of misunderstanding but the responses I got tells me two things:1) there people here with ego bigger than their brains can handle 2) then there are people like PMan who stroke others ego in the name of respect and gratitude and are creating an environment that is not conducive for new comers :) I have seen non-constructive posts like the one p man and appiration made in other threads by other users as well.

After all this is a bunch of tube nuts we are talking about :) I don’t want to waste any more time on this. I am sure I will hear back but I am happy to accept your opinions as yours and not going to respond. Happy jeeping.
