After replacing the rear calipers, still had the original wheel that heated before, heating brakes again. I figure the rubber line that serves that wheel is acting as a check valve with debris in the line. I can't find a source for the lines. Any ideas?
Thanks

Remove the questionable line(s) and visit a CarQuest or other specialty automotive store. Perhaps they can match it up to a new one. Most likely all flexible brake lines are the same age, replacing all should be considered.
You are right! These lines can collapse inside and prevent the brake fluid from flowing back to the master cylinder.

I'd recommend replacing them with stainless lines (actually plastic lines with stainless armor sheaths). We've used them in race cars and high performance street applications for years. Not only do they last longer, they actually improve brake feel. They make universal replacements - all you have to do is match the fitttings and length. They are a bit more expensive - but worth it!
