Air brake system tubing

Recommended Posts

I am currently restoring a 1962 B61T. Currently the air brake tubing is copper. What is the preferred/required replacement tubing to be used? I will be using the truck for show and recreational use.

Parker sells fittings for old style cooper tubes too. And new tubes could be purchased in a home store. General use is air conditioning I belive. Those you my use in a truck sell in a coil. Straight portions are hard and don't allow to be bent the way you need.
