The one formed like a U is for the viscomatic? Where can I get this?
And the others are for braking? Two lines with different size?

The blue paint is Hammerite for stopping the rust until I get new one.

Mine also rusted and it was possible to get the U pipe (for cooling the power steering), but not all of the viscomatic pipes were available. So I got hoses made for the system instead. They do not fit over the petrol tank, so they are put around it instead. I will see if I can find some pics of it mounted on the car. I had an extra set made at the same time.

Wow, that one rusty hydraulic block!

How did you bleed the hydraulic lines after installation? Did you use the Alfatester with the MA12A module or did you do it in another way?

I'm still working on a way to duplicate the signals needed to bleed the viscomatic computer.

The car has also been driving a lot :)

It's a good question how the garage did that. To my knowledge they did not have the module, but I haven't really had problems with it. The light came on some times in winter (lot's of snow) when I was having fun. That might also be connected to something with the ABS...

So what ever you come up with would be very interesting!

I can see that this was written 7 years ago but I wonder if you maybe have the extra set left too sell? My pipes have rusted just over the petrol tank and I need too replace them.

I second the last question.

If you have any info regarding the Viscomatic hoses replacement, please post it in the alternative parts thread: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1869" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I'm trying to collect as much information as possible.
