Where to get rear brake distribution block?

Ok I have been looking at the parts stores, hardware stores, and auto repair places. I need to find a Junction block that goes on the rear axle of my 67 camaro.

I sold the 12bolt out and installed a 9" with disc brakes and have all the stuff plumbed in except the part where all 3 brake lines come together at the top of the axle.

I have been searching online for the last 2hrs trying to find something and nothing.

I need a block that goes from a 7/16 inlet to 2-3/16 outlets, I might have to call the guy that bought my old axle to bring it back to me. It was all aftermarket disc brakes and stuff on it also. Wasn't done by me though.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Yeah I have looked at that website. No luck with finding actual sizes for the oulets and inlet. It just says the stock oem part. Doesn't help me because I am pretty sure this isn't a stock part for at least my vehicle. Probably something else I am unaware of.

It is probably 1/4 inch pipe thread to dual 3/16 tubing.
You might be looking for the incorrect size.
It does receive the rubber hose nipple right?

Finding that correct block should be easy from Chevrolet parts or any other parts dept. Maybe even Year One.

Is there actually a separate block? On most GMs the rear axle distribution block is actually part of the fitting on the hose that runs from the frame to the axle housing. Buy a new hose and the fitting is part of it.

I know which fitting you are trying to find. It is a 1/4 IFF inlet with 2 3/16" IFF outlets. It screws on the end of your rubber hose that has a 1/4 male IFF thread. ( I just had to reuse one on a 40 buick) The thread size of the tube nuts that fit that Tee are 7/16 20 and 3/8 24 respectively.

Edelmann doesn't have one, neither does Speedway. I looked in my weatherhead catalog and they don't have that fitting either.

You could try NAPA, or get a 1/4 "IFF tee fitting and put 1/4 to 3/16 bushings to fit to your hard lines.

Instead of using a seperate Tee at the end, I usually use a Raybestos BH36606 soft line that already has the T on the end. It has a through hole for mounting to your axle.

You could also ask for a BH 38845, BH36799, BH36849.

Those have a straight Tee at the end. The 36606 has an angled tee.
Later, mikey
