Hello all, as I continue to slowly work down the list of repair/replace issues, I’m about ready to run the new fuel and rear brake lines. I have the body shored up about 6” off the frame. My question is, I have converted to a dual m/c, and have the lines run for the front drums, what is the best/easiest route to take from the m/c to the rear? Im thinking I may just run the rear line along the same path to the passenger A arm and follow the original route. Just wanted to throw it out there hoping someone else has crossed this bridge in the past.
Many thanks,
Brian

good day fellow impala owner,
I have a 60 impala and ran the lines with the original lines from driver side down to front cross member and over to passenger side then back to the rear line.
I did fuel and brake lines at the same time.
im new to the forum and haven't figured out how to post pics. it works perfectly,used nickel copper lines and plumbed and made all lines my self. the nickel copper is forgiving for the beginner brake line guy..

hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply. I’ll be running new fuel lines as well. I figured that was probably the best way to route the brake line, just always good to have some affirmation from someone who has done it before. Thanks

https://www.getdiscbrakes.com/bom58h4 is for 4 wheel manual disc conversion but should be able to work.

Or use the factory setup from the old single master system except when it gets to the brass T on the passenger side use a solid brass plug so that the line feeds JUST the rear circuit disconnecting the hardline to the right front wheel. Then form a new line to run parallel to the original line along the front cross member, add one more brass junction block to the passenger front wheel and back over to the drivers side adding another T on the frame rail connecting the LF wheel and the master cylinder. This way your only fabricating one line and adding 2 T fittings and Two solid plugs. https://issuu.com/truckandcarshop/docs/ cs_58-72_we... bottom right are the junction blocks

Be sure to DOUBLE flare all brake lines.
