Re: braided brake lines

Summit sells a set from Russell. The only thing is the 67-69 kit only fits disk brake carsnot drum. Found out the hard way.

Re: braided brake lines

I need lines for a 1967 with drum brakes all around. Ricks sells them for around $24 and when you add in the shipping cost $13, it comes out to about $37. A set of four will run me about $ 120. Anyone have a cheaper place?

And to add to this, when they say "Drum Brakes," ask them "For sure?"
Even drum brake hoses don't fit drum brake cars, or for anything else.

Summit was nice enough to return & refund.

Inline Tube (www.inlinetube.com) has them for $95 - not sure what the shipping would be. I just ordered a bunch of stuff from them and they were very helpful on the shipping.

Re: braided brake lines

Why put braided hoses on drum brakes???
There is no benefit to braking, drums have much less line pressure. Stock hoses will work very well for drum brakes.

Smile Re: braided brake lines

I though they would work better and everyone says that they eliminate spongy pedal feel and stop in a shorter distance. That why. If that's not the case, then stock hoses it is, there cheap anyways. That's why I asked and respect your feedback.

Re: braided brake lines

I agree with David.

For a stock drum/drum or disk/drum the stock brake lines work fine. The line pressures for these systems is about 60% of what most modern systems require, and they too work fine with OEM rubber lines. If the brake system is in good condition and properly bled the limiting factor is not the brake lines, it's the tires.

Braided lines are useful on custom applications where different lengths and/or ends are needed. Since I run AN fittings for everything finding rubber hoses is tough.
