I finally made it back and really gotta git er done.

I have been having a bit of health problems of late and had to let my project sit in waiting. I had her media blasted a couple of years back and primed but the company that I used did a poor job with the primer. They must have primer that cost .10 per gallon because the complete body is covered with surface rust. I'll get back to that later but now I need to get the brake system and fuel line plumbing done so I can get the body back on the chassis to give me more room to work. Age is er creepin up on me and GR8 '48 bow tie is still completely disassembled waiting to be resurrected. Do any of you have a schematic for brake line setup for the 40's Chevrolet Fleetline Aerosedan with M ll IFS disc and Camero rear drum. I have a roll of stainless steel tubing but I need to get all the connecting hardware and git er done. Thanks for any help and or advise you might want to send my way.

You wont find any diagrams for want you want to do, the one thing you can do is draw it out, that way you dont over buy parts. SS brake line is hard to work with, are you planing on going all AN style with it? If you do you will need a 37degree flaring tool and buy all the diffrent addaptors to fit everything.
Unless its a show rig imo I would run the Napa black coated line and run all standard fitting, with the 45 degee double flare.

What do you mean by AN style?

BTW this is my first try at doing a complete brake system replacement. Do you think it would be more cost effective to take this project to a brake shop and risk being skinned alive, or should I continue on my own? I am not a certified mechanic but I do have quiet a few years of certified shade tree wrench turning.

You can do it yourself..just get under something you already have and use that as a guide for your system..make a sketch of where you are running the lines and go from there. I am assuming a disk drum system..

An stands for army navy, its a style of fittings developed for the military during WWII. It was so everything was the same no matter who made it,( tanks jeeps ect) well it worked so well its still used today. Like when someone says PS lines will be -6an or a 3/16 brake line is -3. Every number in AN is a 1/16''. So -6 AN would be 6/16ths or 3/8ths.-3 is 3/16th and so on.
Running SS lines is a great way to go but probably not for the first timer,its just not very forgiving. If your running disc disc I would run all the lines 3/16, if its disc drum I would run 3/16 for the front and 1/4 to the rear. IMO I would run steel line,as for if your should do it yourself or not I cant say, but its not that hard once you get the hang of it.
