Brake line questions

I've been all over the net looking for braided stainless steel brake hose and fittings and not finding much. I converted the rear brakes over to disk years ago but just hooked up the hard lines. With the calipers movement, it really should have a little hose. I've got 3/8-24 fittings (3/16 line) on both ends but mostly I'm finding AN stuff listed, maybe because I keep finding streetrod sites as sources.

I'm going to replace everything in the near future. When I did the frame change, I had to use the Vice-grips on one flare nut and everything is original, meaning 22 years old. Maybe I should convert? The adapters is something I've found plenty of..

Re: Brake line questions

Check out explorer passenger side rear brake lines. Also maybe the lincoln rears disk setup. Or caddy. Any that has rear disk should be a good start.

Re: Brake line questions

I just got a set from In-Line Tube. They don't look too bad. Classic Tube also sells them. I think Classic will also make a lines for you with what ever you want. They will also duplicate a line in stainless if you send them the original. They did this for me with the power steering lines.

Re: Brake line questions

You can also go to any place that makes up hydraulic hoses and have them fab anything you need. I had this done for my Harley. Just don't tell them that it's for the braking system (liability issues). Was just looking and JC Whitney has them in their catalog for your application.

Re: Brake line questions

Speedway Really cheap on the stainless braided stuff and you can buy the adapters to go from AN to standard from them too (still cheaper than buying stainless from a 4x4 catalog).
