...But not wanting to spend the extra bucks for components that can handle more than 48v is.

Crawled under the immobilized FS this evening to see if I could detatch the busted brake line where it meets a union. Nuh-uh. Couldn't budge the nuts - even after soaking them for a few days with penetrating oil. There's a fair amount of corrosion under there.

It looks like this might be one of those "house of cards" situations, where you end up busting more stuff up and down the line trying to get something fixed.

Ivan's dad has a flare tool, so I think we're going to try to splice in repairs without removing the ends of the lines.
