  • Brakes: 62 GT hard line fittings

    Does anyone have info handy for complete re-plumbing 3/16" brake hard lines on a stock 62 GT 4 wheel manual drum brakes to include thread size and fitting count for male and female tube nuts and brass tee fittings required.

      I'm going to use the old lines as a pattern to make new nicopp lines. Just looking to see if someone else did this recently and has a record of how many flare nuts they purchased. My son is picking up some tubing from Speedway and I was having him pick up the flare nuts also. Just don't have the old ones off yet.

        They would be the same as the ones you take off the car. All lines this size will have the same fitting. I Usually get bendable steel but the nickel-copper lines are less likely to crimp. Use a tubing bender. If you use bulk line, you MUST double flare the ends so you'll need to buy , borrow, or rent a double flaring tool.

          The flare nut thread is 3/8"-24 I think there are 13 of them. One "T" for the brake light switch, one for the two front lines and one at the master (mine was a "T-run"type), I can't remember if there's one on the rear axle or if its part of the hose like a Ford. I'm thinking the hose screws into a "T". I changed all that stuff to a different system but I don't recall the "T"s being simple standard "T"s. I'm thinking a dozen or so flare nuts should get you there unless you add some unions to make installation easier; your existing "T"s should do.

            Rick, yes, there is a "T" at the rear end. It bolts to the left side of the housing.
