I am going to be doing some work on my rigs brakes soon (adding stainless lines). What do you guys use to plug the hard lines so I dont completely drain the master cylinder while I switch flexible lines? I am sure I could come up with something, but maybe someone has a quick simple solution. Thanks.

Wood golf pegs. You know those things they put the balls on when they first hit em down the fairway. I'm not sure plastic would work for a hard line so get wood and don't break them off like my former neighbor did, just stick them in.

I find the plastic vacuum caps works well (red for the brake lines):

I got a set from JC WHitney but some auto parts stores may have them.

Find some way to push your brake pedal down about an inch or so. This will cover the holes on the reservoir that are in the body of the MC. It will drip a little but will eventually stop. I use my old steering wheel club and put the forked end on the pedal and the other end on the front of the seat cushion.
