I just replaced my rear end on my 68 c 10 and had to replace rear brake line. The new one I got from classic ind doesn't fit threads on my old rear drum brake. Does any one know. If there a adaptor or what, just wondering, I have some taps I'm gonna try and match to see if maybe threads are bad . Any advice or suggestions always appreciated. Thank joe

Various sizes of adapters are available, but first you need to describe what you are working with.

Do you know for certain what year rear axle you installed? Are you trying to replace the hard line on the frame, the hard line on the axle housing, or the flex hose which connects the frame hard line to the tee on the housing?


Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.

Different rear ends have diferent size fittings. I would go to ACE are O-Rielly's and get what I needed.
