Brake Parts for a 73... Sort of
« on: September 09, 2012, 03:24:19 PM »
OK, looking for brake lines and distribution block for a 73 or later pinto.  Working on my car today with a few issues that has poped up and need some help sourcing parts.  The Driver side brake line (Hard line from engine bay to hose) was frozen on the old hose  When I did get it off of the one side but had it shear off inside the distribution block.  If I can get the rest of the lines off, I can pull out and try to easy out the connection, but fear that 39 years has caused the condition I am in and that replacement is not a bad idea.  Now to figure out what is next. 

Am I better off sourcing used/NOS parts or going all new parts and get it over with?
