Q: brake line on 1994 Mazda B3000

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have a leak in my brake line and I don't know if it is in the steel pipe or the rubber sections. Do I need to drop the gas tank in order to get access to the steel brake line?

Of course you'll have to find out for sure where your brake line is leaking before you can fix anything. Brake fluid dissolves in water so you could spray everything clean, allow to dry and find the source easier than if everything's covered with brake fluid. I've found that for fuel tank and fuel line work, sometimes it's easier to lift the truck bed to access the fuel tank area, this may be a good way to get to the brake lines but I'd have to look myself to see, you may have to move the tank anyway. First find out exactly where the leak is..
