    Thanks NPeteN - exactly what I needed - all fittings look the same - looks like I may only need the ferrule

    Thanks again L.A.B. - Now that I know these are compression fittings I can tackle it myself. I may even be able to source the compression ring locally - if not , then I can source the components online - NPeteN ‘s link to Old Britts indicates they stock the components.

    Rocker feed crossover line shortened - new compression ferules from Old Britts arrived Friday .
    Again many thanks to NpeteN and L.A.B. for the help -

    Anyone care to weigh in on this next issue ? I have balanced both wheels . The rear took 3oz - more than what I had available in the spoke weight department so I straddled the spoke that needed the weight with two 1 1/2 oz weights. Rim balanced perfectly now but the weights are on spokes that lead in the direction of rotation at the rim . While centrifugal force will of course act on them to move them outwards toward rim will acceleration of the wheel cause them to move along the spoke towards the hub because of the weights inertia and the fact that they are on leading spokes ? The weights have set screws at the nipples and I cross drilled them outside of the slot and safety wired them. I suppose I can either wait and see or take the rear wheel off and see how it balances with the weights moved to the nearest trailing spokes. The problem being I did this balancing in the wheel truing stand with no grease in the bearings and no washers/felt seals in order to minimize friction.
    The hubs are now buttoned up with grease, felts etc.
    Any input on this would be appreciated .

    I've never seen any spoke weights migrate towards the center, which is likely physically impossible regardless of which spoke the weight is placed upon.

    Thanks Danno- in hindsight, had I recognized this concern while the wheel was in the truing stand I could have backed of the set screw and sharply spun the wheel to see what the weights would do - but alas I did not- RT

    I’ve had good results using Goodridge “Sniper” line and fittings to make my own custom length brake lines. I cant think of a reason they couldn’t be used for rocker feed lines. That being said I just purchased an AN set of feed lines for my project.
