front brake hoses

I'm building a 28 chrysler coupe, I've got an early ford dropped axle, with a magnum disc brake conversion on it with the later style small gm calipers. I want to run the stock style gm hoses, but all I can find are twelve inch long hoses, I need at least a thirteen inch long hose, I don't want to use the braided aftermarket jobs, looking to keep this more period looking. Thanks, LeRoy.

Magnum axle company will have the answer

I have a magnum axle and brakes on my car. I would recommend going to the Magnum axle web site, get the phone number and call them. Tell them what you have and what you are trying to do. They could tell you if what you are looking for is available and what to do if it is not. The people at magnum axle are very knowledgeable. I could only get the stainless brake hose for my car but the plain rubber might be available for yours.

front hoses

Then the bracket would stick out from the frame by an inch or more, would scream look at me to passers by. They'd wonder why I didn't get the proper hose.

Dorman should make what you need. Search the Summit Racing website for Dorman brake hose and see what you can find. Normally they ship same day if it's in stock. Here's a link to search

brake hoses

I like to buy my parts through my local parts guy, I could do the online thing, but I want my parts guy to still be in business this time next year. I'm an old guy, still have old guy ways, one of them being aware that online shopping hurts his business big, seeing I live in a small town, he needs me, much as I need him. Back to my question, does anybody have an idea of what I can use?

A good NAPA store

When My son was doing his 22 Dodge lakester, 36 Plymouth wiggle tube axle, Ford style single spring, hairpins, GM brakes We took a brake caliper into the local NAPA store and the owner did a little searching and found a brake hose we needed. The kids working there only knew how to look up your car and part on the computer.

If you can tell me (specifically) what those calipers fit, I'm willing to give it a shot at coming up with a NAPA part number.

I do have an Excel spreadsheet (zip file attached) that I have created that I use to filter by length, but then I need to know what fittings are used on each end.

If I have a vehicle application to start with ... I can probably determine the fitting types.

PS.
If you find a part number that has possibilities in that Excel file ... you can cheat a little and use the Raybestos website to cross it over. Their Part Number is usually identical to the NAPA part number except that they add a "BH" (Brake Hose) prefix.

This will display a pic of the part for you to confirm that it has the ends you desire.

NAPA part number 36845 has the same ends, and is 15" long.

Ermmmm ... the "same ends" as what?

I had a look at 1997 Lumina (My interpretation of "later style GM small calipers") ... and found metric thread.

Here are the details on Raybestos # BH36845
