Brake line bulkhead T


Didn't think such a common part 30 years ago would be so hard to find. Looking for part# or source for a 3/16 brake line bulkhead "t" that goes on the front fender well of a 66 Canso. Can see 1 on my 4dr Canso but can't seem to find a place that sell's them. Same as this with retainer grooves but for 3/16 line on all 3 ports. Thanks

(47-70 Truck, 67-68 Camaro) Brake Line Rear Hose Tee Fitting

I'll take a look in the next couple of days Jim, I'm pretty sure I have one kicking around. Will let you know and I can drop it in the mail.

Would it be the same as a 66 Nova?

Thanks Jerel and yes Clint I think they all run the same bulkhead connector. You'd think they would be on the shelf at a suppliers!

A diverter block, just make sure you use a dab of lock tight on the threads while everything is clean and dry, nothing more frustrating than rebuilding entire brake system and discovering weeping and leakage.

Well I found a couple of them tonight but none where all 3 are the same size. May have one more but will have to wait for the weekend on that one.

Thanks for taking the time to look Jerel. Think the ones you found might be for the rear diff if one port is larger than the two others. Had to go down to the back 40 anyway so I took a couple of pics of the one on the 4dr. If I can't find might just bush the rear diff one I have.

They both were off the front, one was from a 63 and the other was from a 66. The one has one port smaller than the others while the other is one port larger.

 Thanks Carl, but I'm looking for the one with the retainer groove like in top pic.

Jim,sure on that 3/16 size? This size is said to be 7/16-20 ......seems too big.....I'm thinking somewhere there's a mistake (better check before buying)

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1964-70-Rear-Flex-Brake-Line-Hose-Brass-Tee-Block-with-w-Slot-SS-GS-GTO-/200863207333?rmvSB=true

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1964-70-Rear-Front-Flex-Brake-Line-Hose-Brass-Tee-Block-with-w-Slot-Corvette-/190823985090?rmvSB=true

 Inline Tube GMTEE02 - GM Brass Brake Hose Tee 1pc.

Brake Hose Tee.This tee is often thrown away with the hose. This tee mounts to the hose. The block slips through the frame bracket and is cliped on the back side of the block. This tee has a special size of 7/16-20 to fit the brake hose, and a slot for the hose clip. No substitution can be made on this part. This solves countless installation problems where the axle lines hook to the original hose. One tee is used per car.  This is exact to NOS factory original in every detail except it is a brand new inline tube reproduction. These are sold in catalogs for as much as $18.00 to $24.00 but much lower here.  

Applications:

1953-82 Corvette

1967-68 Camaro

1962-68 Nova

1937-57 Chevy

1958-68 Impala

1940-57 Pontiac

1938-70 Chevy Truck

These are the details that separate the first place cars from the rest. Please view my exclusive other e-bay items at my Ebay Store MotorCityMuscleCar or InlineTube.

From a flow standpoint I'd think one side would be bigger than the other 2.  The larger one would supply the other 2 smaller ports.  However, I'm also finding GM change sizes from year to the next for the same item.  And it may not be the line size, it may just be a larger fitting on the same size line.

O.k. This is one of those things that drives a guy nuts!!! Stopped by two Commercial Transport repair shops that I deliver to today and went through about 10 books with no luck !! Carl,I have one of the ones you showed but the shoulder isn't long enough to put a groove and retainer on and still fit through fender. Might just run line through hole and put big rubber grommet in.no

The tee with the large 7/16-20 thread could have an adapter (part #7818 ) put into it to accommodate a 3/16 brake thread.

I found a couple more today but similar style to the ones I found before. Sorry I think that's all I've got.

Thanks for the hunting Jerel, I'll keep looking, if I can't find I'll do as George suggested and use an adapter.
