Brakeline resource
« on: October 07, 2012, 06:05:43 PM »
  Just to let everyone know I took a complete set of brakelines off of a '77 wagon with power brakes and disc/drum combination and sent them to Inline tube in shelby twp. michigan. They made me a set of lines from them for the '76 wagon. They came in and they looked exactly like the originals and fit was perfect. I screwed up when I sent them the lines forgetting that the '77 was a power brake car and the '76 is a manual brake car so I had to resend the lines from the master cylinder to the proportioning valve off the '76, got those back in about three days, fit was perfect.
  So to make a long story longer, Inline tube at inlinetube.com now has a complete brake line set for wagons with power or manual brakes and disc/drum combination. I know for sure they will fit '76 and '77 wagons but you will have to change the rubber brake hose to the rear end to the '77 style hose. I believe all the lines should fit all Pintos with disc/drum combos except the line running from the proportioning valve to the rear end should be wagon specific, but I do NOT know that for certain. Could someone who knows more about this please verify? Or maybe give the years and models that these lines will fit?
  They can make them in steel or stainless, they have the correct fittings and the spring stone guards where required.

Sorry I haven't been on for a few days. They charged $231.00 for the complete set out of steel. They may be a little cheaper for you because they have a "slight upcharge" for duplicating custom lines ( lines that are not in their catalog) but now that I have supplied them with patterns they have a program for these.
