68 front disc caliper bracket question

Ran into a problem when trying to replace my front soft hose onto my 68 front disc calipers... the previous owner had the soft lines bolted directly into the caliper via what I assume is an aftermarket fitting...

I purchased replacement soft lines from classic and realized they donít fit as it seems I need a bracket that attaches to the caliper and an additional hard line that goes into the caliper... hope this makes sense...

I searched classic web site and found the short steel HARD line I need but cannot figure out what the bracket looks like or how its secured to the caliper that marries the soft line to the hard steel line on the caliper it self

Any ideas?

Re: 68 front disc caliper bracket question

Factory 4 piston calipers use a short hard line from the hose to the caliper. It sounds like you are looking for these.

I think thatís the one! Does it attach using one of the two caliper bolts?

Re: 68 front disc caliper bracket question

Ok I think Iíve figured out what bracket I need and how it attaches... apparently the hard lines come in various sizes so I need to figure out what size I need...

I think after I spend the money to replace all these parts I might be better off upgrading to a braided type line... is anyone running upgraded braided lines from the factory locations to the factory calipers? If so what company makes em?
