Wilwood front disk brake line routing???

Does anyone with a similar setup have a picture of their front brake line routing/plumbing? I have Wilwood disks and their master cylinder and prop valve as pictured here. I ordered a complete set of pre-bent lines from Right Stuff. I just can't see how to connect the hard lines to the calipers AND still use the original brake line brakes at the frame. Am I supposed to use the original flex-line to frame brackets up front? The original brackets won't accommodate these lines with Wilwood's braided lines. Any clue as to what I am missing?

In the last picture, you can see how the passenger side hardline hangs over the frame. Is the line supposed to sit like this?

Thanks for any input!

Re: Wilwood front disk brake line routing???

I think I may have found the problem. I am trying to use frame brackets for an original disk brake car. I think these aftermarket hardlines want to connect to the drum brake line brackets. Does this sound correct?

Re: Wilwood front disk brake line routing???

First off, lets work from the caliper to the brake line. Probably a 10mm banjo fitting(check your calipers or with Wilwood or their website), from there you'll need a hose, then an adapter to fit the 3/16" original hard line.
Here's a few links to get an idea.

640471.......Adapter Fittings - Brake and Clutch Hose - Russell Performance Products

656242..........Universal Brake Hose - Brake and Clutch Hose - Russell Performance Products


641411........Adapter Fittings - Brake and Clutch Hose - Russell Performance Products

This is what I used to swap out my front Z51 vette brakes from Kore brakes. You'll have to measure your hoses once you turn the wheel lock to lock. I used the factory hose bracket and the retainer and it works out fine with these fittings.

Hope this helps.

Here's a not so great pic of the passenger side, you can see the banjo bolt with the crush washers
One thing I would recommend is to stay with the same manufacturer when combining fittings.
