I own a 71 nova that original 4 drum/non power assist brake set up. I converted the car to a front disc/power assist brake system. The issue I am running into is this. I have looked at a friends 70 nova and the hoses exit the caliper at the rear. The ones I have exit out of the front. Normally I would careless but because of this and the brake hose being excessively long it is causing the hose to rub up against one of the balljoints. Over time this could eventually brake the rubber seal on the balljoint or even rupture the brake hose. The calipers for this kit are from an early 70's camaro (I forget exactly what year, and I cannot find the sheet at the moment).
I suppose I could go out and find shorter brake hoses. I do not know though if the sizes of the threads and fittings are all the same or not. My solution I was thinking of involved using a hose/line rubber clamp and drilling the frame and mounting it to the frame, making sure that the hose will have enough length to turn lock to lock without stressing it. Will this solution work? Will it cause any debilitating harm to the frame drilling a hole on each side like that?
Once this problem is fixed I can start to drive my girl again, she has gotten restless sitting on the side of the house. Been really busy lately and finally remembered to come seek your guys' advice.
