I'm installing the brake lines on my 66 Fastback project and have a few questions. Since I've installed a 68 9" rear, and are installing dual exhausts, where do I relocate the "rear hose to body" bracket? Assuming that I need to use the 67/68 9" 28 spline rear hose and hard lines, what front to rear lines do I use? As best I can tell, there may be some large/small brake line fittings issues too (on the front to rear line). Can I use a 67/68 front-to-rear line or must I use a 66 dual exhaust line? Has anyone been through this installation and can shed some light? On someone's recommendation, I have purchased Boss rear brake lines, but they are n't even close to what I think should be installed.

The two lines on the 9" rear are different. You can order the correct stuff from Inline Tube, 800-385-9452 www.inlinetube.com or Classic Tube 800-882-3711 www.classictube.com I have used Classic with success. I have a 65 GT so I used the dual exhaust front to rear line. It will put the lines in close connection for the rear hose but you will have to mount the hose to line bracket about 6-7 inches inboard from the single exhaust location. Positioning the dual exhaust line will give you the exact location you will need. If you order from either co. be sure to tell them your year of each part and maybe they can offer a different suggestion. But by doing it this way, it should eliminate the need for bending or unions, etc. At the front of the car the line comes into the engine bay going directly to the prop. valve on the disc brake 65/66. If your brakes are drum you may have to make a different bend there.
