  • brake line fitting thread size?

    Does anyone know for sure what the fitting size is off the hardlines? The ones that thread into the hoses? Front specifically, rear would be nice too

    I've heard multiple answers.......

    IIRC they are bubble flare in the rear. You can get a bubble flare to standard flare adaptor then use standard flare tubing ends or premade tubing.

      Just remember the rears changed through the years or with the brake configuration of the car.

        No not the flares I need the thread size. Fronts I heard m8 x 1.0 but that doesn't seem correct.

          Yes, I could use this information as well....my '95 had drums - now has rear discs. Prob I ran into was that the rear disc lines are the incorrect 'gender' for mating to my existing rear hard lines. I used the proportioning valves as a "gender bender", but now I have very little rear disc brake action due to having these proportioning valves/gender benders in place while also having the factory stock proportioning valves at the master cylinder. If I knew the thread size, I could buy "gender benders" to install and restore my rear brake action.
