cpp front disc brake conversion brake line

help,did the cpp deluxe sub frame conversion on my 63 no problem,just installed the zero offset front disc brakes no problem,now installing brake booster/dual master cylinder with prop valve and can't figure out how the brake line for the rear brakes goes,the kit from cpp has the plug to isolate front brakes and coupler for rear brakes,the line shape looks almost the same as the front brake line but they say it goes under the engine along the crossmember,to me it seems too long,thanks,oilman hope someone out there has done this,not sure to install top side or from underneath

your line goes to the rear end, with the double master cylinder you isolate the front brakes from the rear,thats the safety factor ,if you brake a line you will have either front or back that will still stop you, the 67 nova was the first year for dual master cylinder and it comes up the drivers side to feed the back. the plug goes in the junction block on passenger front fenderwell take the original line running up passenger side from rear end to passenger junction block out .your not gonna need it ,the adapter is probably for your proportioning valve to adapt the line going tothe rear brake you will still use your original feedline that runs under the engine to feed fluid to your front brakes.

SHHHHWINNGGGGG! I got my disk upgrade today...

Oilman,

I'll be keeping an eye to this thread to get a preview of potential obstacles with a CPP kit, but I am stoked about getting my stuff today...

I am in the middle of installing shift kit in THM200-4r. Found 1 - 2 accumulator spring broken into 3 pieces, so I have to wait for parts.:(



The cool front disk brake kit upgrade, and front 1-1/8" antisway bar, and the rear 7/8" antisway bar.:D




9" Brake booster, dual reservoir cylinder, and proportional valve (just because one does not know if a BB is in one's car future...:eek: :devil::D)



And the sweet drilled/slotted front rotor disk and caliper assembly...I have my work cut-out...:(:eek::D



Oilman, post pictures when you can, please...


GerryLP:cool:
