Brake line splitter


This is the stock splitter line on a 71-73 Mustang 9 inch rear. You can't see it in this photo but, there are two hard lines going to each drum screw into the block mounted on the bracket.
The rubber hose portion is gone but, otherwise my block is fine. Does anyone have experience with this particular part? What I'm trying to determine is if I can unscrew the metal portion of the hose that's still in the block. I don't have a vise and so far my attempts of holding it with vise grips haven't worked.
I might be beating a dead horse (get it? ) by trying to get this off. The only place I've looked wants 40 bucks for the whole assembly.

If it won't come off, I'd rather by a splitter somewhere and mount it to the bracket. The reason is that I really would rather have a braided stainless line going to the frame line rather than a rubber one.
Any suggestions on where to find a splitter?

I see one that'll work. And, it looks like there's a distributor in Pearland...right down the road.

Thanks!

That is a common part, that you should be able to get at any parts store. The rubber hose wont unscrew..........

A Plain Jane splitter is a common part or the complete assembly?

The complete part....the braided steel line would be an aftermarket item.....probably available from a speed shop. I wouldn't bother.....the rubber lasts nearly forever.
