Hi Guys


I have a few questions regarding the install of a CPP big brake kit on a 1965 Impala.

On the proportional valve there are 3 inlets for the brake lines.
Two 3/8" inlets to the front brakes and one 9/16" to the rear.

I have 3/16" tubing for the front, which has 3/8" flare nuts so there's no issue here.

The one to the rear brakes is a 9/16" inlet and I 've found a 9/16" flare nut for that.
This nut is for a 1/4" brake line though (I didn't find any 9/16" nuts for 3/16 brake line, do they actually exist?)

My problem now:

The axle brake lines provided with the kit are 3/16 lines with 3/8 nuts.

in the rear I have a Tee (original) with 3/8" inlets (which fits the provide lines) but I don't find any 3/8 flare nuts for the 1/4 line to the front.

Can anyone point me in the correct direction on how to solve this, since I'm a bit stuck here.



Another obstacle in providing myself with serious stopping power:

the wheel lugs provided in the kit are way bigger than the original ones (picture link below)
Do I need to drill in the axle (a 10-bolt), if so, which drill do I use best?
Or did I get the wrong lugs?

Code:

Thanks a lot for the feedback

Regards,

Ok. I figured it out myself. I just need to find a rubber brake hose with 7/16 male and 7/16 female, wich is aproxx. 16" long.

Any suggestions on who sells these?

Wonder why this hose is not provide with the kit. Since you'll need to install 1/4 brake line to the back.

Or am I completely wrong here?

Another interesting thing:

While trying to install the hubs on the original spindles, I noticed that wheel bearings (the one that goes first) do not slide on the spindles. I can't get these Chinese bearings on it.
Anyone had this problem?

I guess I have to contact CPP, since they are not watching this forum.

Grtz,
Mark
