Disc conversion brake line question

I installed the front brake conversion to my 67 non-power disc brakes and not the brake lines that go to the device below the master cylinder do not conect. What should I do? If I go to stainless steel line that would cost a lot of cash.

Re: Disc conversion brake line question

Did you go with power disc? New front brake lines came with my power disc kit. if your's didn't you should replace them. no need to really go stainless if you don't want to. I don't think there all that expensive

If you went from drum to disc. The lines are diferent . you can get aluminum resonalble. Make sure you tell them the combo valve you are useing with your kit. Lots of them come with 71-81 style valve.

Re: Disc conversion brake line question

How do you know what combo valve you are using? It also seems that the wire that plugs in does not plug in correctly.

Re: Disc conversion brake line question

Use steel tubing for your hard lines. If you have a decent flaring tool, you can bend and flare your own front brake lines for about $10 total. I just did mine this weekend. The 3/16 steel brake line is very easy to bend by hand - no special tool needed there. If you do your own flares, make sure they are DOUBLE flares. Single flares are a no-no for brake lines. Stainless tubing is a whole 'nuther animal - way more expensive and much more difficult to flare. Granted - it's prettier, but regular steel tubing will probably outlast the car.

If that is the conbo valve your original conector can work you have to push the wire though its cup and then stuff it in the combo valve. Then slide the cup back down.
