'68 brake line routing - Right Stuff kit




Should the line hang this far over the subframe? Fitment on the drivers side seems correct. Passenger side is surprising. I thought the line would hug the subframe.?.?

Re: '68 brake line routing - Right Stuff kit

Also, on the drivers side, does this look about right for routing? I assume the need to make minor bends is to be expected?

When I was doing my brakes Right Stuff had a great custome service. Give then a call and email your pictures, I am sure they will help you with your problem.

+2 On their customer service, where did you get the lines/kit from? I had a similar case where my passenger side was too short. I ordered my kit from MCB and I sent them the pics and they forwarded them to Right Stuff. They sent me a new line (which was the correct length) and did not charge me a dime. I tried to send them the other line that was basically useless back, they said no worries.

Re: '68 brake line routing - Right Stuff kit

I redid my entire brake system last summer with SS lines from Right Stuff and there were a few moments head scratchin trying to figure out how they expected you to get the puzzle back together and get stuff in the right place. In the end everything fit exactly as in the original factory lines, there is a particular order and at one point we removed the master cylinder and of course everything fell into place no issues.

Re: '68 brake line routing - Right Stuff kit

Just getting ready to do this. My master is already mounted, and I really hope I don't have to remove it. Not impossible to do, but my firewall was replaced, and the new one didn't have "studs" to mount the MC on, so had to run bolts from under the dash. Kind of an ***-ache to remove it again.

Do you remember the magic sequence?

Re: '68 brake line routing - Right Stuff kit

you shouldn't have to remove the master cylinder.

Re: '68 brake line routing - Right Stuff kit

I think if I remember right the drivers front was the hardest to get up around and behind the other obstructions but once the master was loose from the booster it was easy otherwise it was a knuckle-buster.

I replaced the MC, and metering block and proportional valve all at the same time I was changing lines so this may have complicated my install. I used all the same parts as the originals. Looks like you are using a newer style of some of those blocks.

Re: '68 brake line routing - Right Stuff kit

I'm sure that part of it is the angle, but looking at Pic 3, there sure isn't much room to get the steering box in there...
