Brake Line Union
#1
Replacing all of my brake lines and have ran into a connection problem.  I have front disc brakes and on the passenger side, I have two male fittings at the shock tower.  Is there a special coupler or union needed to connect the cross over line to the wheel line?  If so, what size is it and where can I find one?

Thanks,
Andy

It is just a regular old inverted flare coupler, but I forgot the size.

Thanks.  That's what I thought.  Hopefully someone will chime in with the size for stock lines.

I took my lines to Advance and they let me go behind the counter to the rack and sort out what I need. They are inch and everything now is metric so be sure of size. You can check with caliper or micrometer.
I know on the rear axle that Ford had two different size connectors on the junction there but repo lines have just one size so the J block no longer works. Great Repo parts.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

3/8-24 internal thread. I’m about 90% sure of it.

I'll be doing those soon.  How would you make that work?  Is it a 3-way "y" fitting to replace the OEM block?

Be careful with brake line fittings - your life could depend on them.  For these joiners, look up SWAGELOK - they have a double ferrule style that is super strong and easy to use.  I recall brake lines are 3/16" o / d standard ( yes, put a good vernier over a clean line section to check )  Probably not in your average hardware store but the website should list distributors in your area.
Happy hunting.
