Brake Line Routing

I am trying to reinstall the brake lines. Ag-gra-va-ting! Do the lines run through these holes? I have seen some pics where they were and rubber grommets were used. If yes, where did you get the grommets?

Thanks.

Couldn't bring myself to pay $6 a piece for them! I've never used them before, and I read that they trap moisture around the piston, so I passed. But they certainly look good!

Good points. Mine certainly didn't fit tight enough to keep out water, that's for sure.

Scott, unless a 5 is much different than a 7, the return, vapor and brake lines run like this with a hold down on top.

EDIT: On second thought, it probably is different.... so ignore my attempt to help.

The lower arrow in your pic is for one of the parking brake cables. I will get a pic of mine when I go out to get back to work.

Those are the e-brake cable holes, I didn't like the way my brake line looked on my build so I drilled an additional hole, installed a grommet (got a grommet assortment from Harbor Freight) and ran it through that bracket.

You may be absolutely right about the lines. I have them sitting where they seem to "want" to go. The PO had told me that he ran all new brakes/lines, etc... but he lied! She DOES have new pads up front however. I will investigate that route.

This is the Pic that I remember seeing! You did a beautiful job with that. I think it was smart to do. Maybe I'll go this route...

Hoo-boy... I hope there is something useful in this build! It's been so long since I tore it down that I don't remember everything. I took lots of pics but mostly under the hood... I didn't take any of the brake lines.

I know it's a small thing, but I really like the red shift levers!

Clay got the shock mounts cut off so he can mount his front shocks. Got the front brake lines reattached, and the calipers finished and wheels back on.

Steering box is painted and he is working on the brackets for it. He made a mess on my shop floor after I had swept it out! Gotta love your kids!

Can't believe how dirty and scratched up the frame is getting from working on it. We're going to have to wash it and touch up with rattle can before we put the tub on.

Scott you guys have things moving right along. Dirty and scratched up? I know just what you mean. I bet mine has more dust on it than yours though. Love those red shifters.

Hey here's a shot of the brake lines. Hopefully it's a good enough image that you'll be able to see something that will do you some good.

I have determined that this is the routing that the PO used... factory or not. So I put it back the same way. I think he bought bulk line and made his own bends. I ended up with, I believe, too much line at the rear axle. I wanted to get pics tonight but it's just too dark, so I'll do it tomorrow. I bought nylon cable clamps to tie the line back to the frame. I thought they would be durable and not rust. I recommend that you use the metal clamps... the nylon is too light and will break.

Thanks VACJ7 for the pic.
