Runnin' again after 27 years...

Folks,

I am looking for the correct brackets to use for the union between the brake hoses at the calipers and break lines for the front disc brakes affixed to the sub-frame. I am seeing different ones for drum than disc but frequently find that the companies lump in the '67 with the '68 when they don't know exactly what '67 requires.

Thoughts?

 Are you looking for pictures of the brackets?
Mine are not mounted yet so I can provide pictures if needed later today.

That would be great. Attached are what the resto companies are showing for drum vs. disc brackets. The sub-frame looks like the drum bracket is what is called for. I can't see how the disc bracket will lock into place with the supporting tab that the drum one has.

Thanks much,
Matt

These are the ones off of Janobyte's 68 Z.  Should be the same for 67 or 68 4 piston calipers.

There are two brackets for the brake hose. The first one is located on the sub frame and the same part as the drum brake bracket.

The second bracket is located on the steering knuckle and is the ones Darrell referenced above.

Read the 67 AIM (UPC J52, Sheet A1) for more info.

Golden. That is exactly what I needed.

As always, thanks very much for the education! Don't see much by way of me being able to repay you all!

Yes Ed is correct.  You can see the bracket that mounts to the frame in the 2nd pic I posted.  Its small and hard to see at first glance.

You guys every make it to Charleston, SC don't hesitate to look me up. This is the first time I have lived in the southeast and being able to drive the muscle 12 months out of the year is quite the deal.

I am retired military, lived all over the US and nearly 15 years overseas... the only place I said I wouldn't prefer to live was the southeast for all those reasons...

I did my first tour of duty on submarines in 1992 here and said... never again...

This time around though, the AC everywhere! The culture and quality of the folks, the town of Charleston, pace of life, RESTAURANTS! and all that brings has definitely turned me though... not to mention all the enthusiasts with the right kind of things... (rollin' thunder stuff...)
