Rear Brake Hose Issue

Have a minor issue with my rear brake hose. I noticed during tear down that the hose was rubbing against the tank (tank removed in pic) fairly briskly. I have an aftermarket 21 gal. poly tank that hangs down 4" or so lower than stock. I fear that the lip between the stock skid and the extenders may wear the hose down over time. My thought was to put a 90 deg elbow down on the fitting that is attached to the axle, thus vertically orienting the hose, vs. coming in from the rear.

Has anyone else had this issue, and what have you done to fix it? Pics would be helpful.

Thanks!

Turn the block around so the hose comes in from the front.

Or make a small L bracket to change the orientation of the block.

Steel braided line will saw through a poly tank in no time with enough movement. Regardless it's a good catch and would more than likely give you problems down the road.

The above suggestions are the way to go.. A 90 fitting would end up being a weak link, IMHO..

are you sure thats the factory block? on my '83 that stainless line (on yours )would attach to the top of the block not the rearward face. have your brake lines been rerouted?

The rear brake lines are not stock. Not sure if the block is stock or some type of aftermarket

Your fitting is attached to the axle the wrong way and needs to be turned around.

Is there a trick to removing the brake line to the axle (top fitting on your pic). I did an axle swap this weekend and I had to cut the rubber brake line from the old axle because I could not get that fitting loose.

If you can cut it close enough, a deep socket can fit over some of them helping. Lots of penetrating oil first!

Never mind, I was coming at it the wrong way, the steel line can be clipped to get a socket on, not the rubber side sorry. It has a clip holding it to the mount that can come off to get it down lower to get at.
