Rear Brake Line

Bought a 67 a several months ago. Did not like the way the brake line fit. This is the line from the steel tube to the splitter block mounted to the diff. Logan at Camaro Central suggested an aftermarket braided line that was longer. Problem solved.

Re: Rear Brake Line

Your first picture is not a factory fit. I'm glad you were able to fix it with a longer braided line.

Since you mentioned it doesn't the factory steel line go in the top of that bracket? I think if it did the rubber line would be long enough. Just my .02

Re: Rear Brake Line

Jeff, The factory line goes in the bottom. His bracket is mounted in the wrong location.
It should be attached to the larger cross panel on the trunk floor rearward of where
it is now.

His is mounted in the correct location and orientation. It looks like the flex line was just too short.

Re: Rear Brake Line

Dave, You're correct. I was looking at some old pics of mine during tear down and just didn't see it correctly.

Re: Rear Brake Line

Thanks for the feedback. My car started out with 4 drum brakes. Front disc conversion and new lines all the way around in 2005.
