Vacuum or pressure bleeding works fine with empty lines. Even manual bleeding will work, but you might need a lot of patience with that method. As long as HF pump pulls vacuum, it will work. Doesn't take a lot, to get the job done. Be sure to keep brake fluid out of the pump.

Yes


Here's my installation (both brake and clutch lines), attaching with Stainless Zip Ties and Split Rubber Fuel Line

Thank you
 
Alex, I really appreciate the pics and your effort to post them. I need to study a few of them better to really catch what I am looking at.

job started
 
I finally got a chance to work on the brake line swap. Got the two front lines done. It wasn't as hard as I thought it might be, but a couple of tasks were a royal PITA! The hardline-to-hose connection for the left caliper was ridiculous! And both the brackets across the front on that line were very frustrating.
Can someone give me a tip on how to access the connection under the tank? Do I need to remove the alternator?

I ran the Clutch Line Outside the frame, as shown:

...and the right (Rear Brake, Front Left Brake) line as shown: (Had to remove the carb, for access)
