Brake line routing
« on: October 14, 2008, 10:53:26 AM »
Couple of quick tips.
1. Make the tube run ,as much as possible, downhill all the way from the master cylinder to the wheel cylinders.
2. try to not have any steep uphill runs.
3.mount lines so as vibration will not cause failure.
4. When transitioning from hard lines to flex lines mount the end of the hard line to the chassis or suspension to avoid flex.
5.I'm sure there's more. ;D

loyalty to the American people."

It is also a good idea to stay on top or on the back side off the a-arms or trailing arms when running them down to the wheel.  I have seen them mounted on the front of a-arms and it works in the sand but dirt trails and field can kill the exposed lines. And as metioned above allways secure the lines with rubberised clamps. Loss lines can make a nice car a rattle can.
