Re: Do I "really" need new Brake Lines for Conversion
The front disk steel line is a little larger than the drum line. So I would say to replace it with the line that will supply the caliper " that takes much more fluid than a wheel cylinder" so you have optimal brake performance. The brackets that hold the ends of the steel line on the frame are not the same either. The brakes and the steering are things that I never skimp on. All USA parts the first time , are usually the only time needed. The caliper uses much more fluid than the drums, that is why the master cylinder has a bigger reservoir for the front disk. So to answer your question , I think you realy do need new lines. The rear should be fine.
