To answer, you don't want air in your brake lines, ever. There is no way to create an exact amount, nor would an exact amount manage to "level" braking pressure enough to completely dissuade the chance of a "pull" due to the finite relationship of the length, diameter, and components of the braking system being built under the understanding of implied fluids.

Also, if there is air in your system, you have a leak. And if there is a leak, it is impossible to "contain" a finite amount of air pressure inside of the braking system as the basic design of the braking system allows air to be pulled in rather than pushed out, and your brake fluid in turn is the odd man out of the equation.


I'm still wondering what tests dummy dums has taken, what route he took to get his master tech cert, how he thinks brakes systems are designed, in theory, to function forever, and so forth.
It was an intentionally silly question to illustrate the ridiculousness of a difference in 1/16 of an inch in brake line length. My point is that if you have ANY air in the system it will completely obliterate any effect of difference in brake line length because air is more than 1000 times more compressible than brake fluid. If there was any measurable pull due to a 1/16 of an inch difference in brake line length, you would end up in the ditch if you applied the brakes with air in the line.
