rear brake line?

hey guys, i have a 1969 cutlass with a 12 bolt chevy rear out of a chevelle in it. i just started to do the rear brake lines and discovered that theres no provision for a bolt hole on my rear differential? does anybody out there make a special bracket that mounts the rear brake line to the differential? i could have sworn that on my old 10 bolt rear it had a provision for a bolt hole


any help would be much appreciated

The '73 12 bolt posi I did own had a bracket for the brass T fitting attached to it.

This bracket had a hole in the other end that you placed one of the rear cover bolts through to hold the T fitting to the rear.

It shouldn't be too hard to find a T fitting like this at a swap meet, or even made a bracket to hod the T fitting in place?

You can make a bracket out of a piece of small angle iron Or a small piece of flat metal bent into a "L" shape....drill a couple of holes..one for the T-Fitting and one to bolt to the rear end cover using one of your existing bolts.

You could do what Ford of Europe did on the Capri,
run the hose to the rightside wheel cylinder, then
a hardline from the RR cylinder to the LR cylinder,
easy as hell to bleed...
