running brake lines...a few questions
1 Attachment(s)
hi there

well, I have a few questions.

1. this is the "T" to the rear brakes. once again I am finding out how poor of a note taker I am. what goes where?
can anyone help me? the line coming off the bottom is a flexible line with some kind of clip at the end, the two coming off the sides are hard lines.

2. when running the rear brake line up front, do i need to go around the shock or can i run the line right tight to the frame the whole way up?

3. also, the proportioning? valve. should I replace that at this time or should I not worry about it? If i do need to replace it, does anyone have leads as to where to get one? right now it looks as though i may have to replace it cuz i cant get the old lines loose from it.

Re: running brake lines...a few questions
1. The flexible line goes from your frame just above the axle to the axle itself. There is a hole in the crossmember that the brake line runs through. There is a bolt that will hold the "T" to the axle tube. The two hard lines run out to each of the drums.
2. I ran mine close to the frame.
3. Depends. If it's old as the hills, might be some cheap insurance to replace it now.

hi there

thanks for the info...very helpful.

it brings me to another question.

when do you use flexible brake tubing? i was under the impression that it was needed when connecting the tubing to the wheel. obviously not needed for the rear, but how bout the front? need flexible tubing there?

Re: running brake lines...a few questions
Correct. In the rear the flexible tubing is one line that runs frome the crossmember down to the axle. On the front each wheel has flexible lines that run from the hard line to the calipers.
