Brake line union retainer

Hey all,

Apologies if this is a stupid question, but where do I get the brake hose/line union bracket that bolts on to the frame?

Here's the picture of the connector from a YJ jeep:


On the CJ, I believe they aren't bolted to the top like that, but rather go through the frame. Still I believe there is still some kind of bracket/union fitting for them.

You can see the old fittings on my CJ frame here:
(the lines are cut, but you should be able to see the brackets.

I can't seem to find these parts from my rebuild. Does anyone have any advice on where I could either get these same parts or where I could locate any parts that would serve the same purpose.

Also does this bracket/fitting have a name??

Thanks in advance

The brake line is clipped with a "U" shape clip that mounts near the tires on the frame. The lines are held on the frame with "clips" they are spring loaded and are about 1/2 inch long and have a slot for the line.. I don't want to sound like an idiot but it is hard to describe and I can't take a picture. They are available at auto parts stores usually in the self help section.

Thanks texasdave,

I actually dug through my old parts boxes and managed to find the parts!



Any recommendations on what to soak this in to clean up some of this rust?

Thanks!

Hydraulic fluid or automatic transmission fluid works to get it free but a wire wheel and brush help out afterward then a good coat of paint.

You should be able to just clamp the bracket in a vice, then grab the clip with some vise-grips and pull it off. It's just spring steel and you can buy new ones at any parts place. They're generally universal and can be gotten in the section with the "HELP" or "Dorman" brand stuff. So you could even cut them with a cut-off tool if need be, but the vise-grips should do the trick.

Hey everyone,

Thanks so much for the input. Especially thanks for the pictures. Definitely helped when looking in the boxes for the parts.

I ended up cleaning these brackets off and they should be good to go back on the frame! Definitely not easy finding this particular replacement bracket. I'm not sure what advice I'd give to someone who simply lost theirs.
