Front Brake Pipe Routing

PostPost by: rikko » Sun Feb 21, 2010 7:14 pm

Hi guys

I new to this forum but the reason i joined is my dad and i (mainly me) are refurbishing a 72 Elan +2. We have the copper brake pipe kit from spyder and also received from sue miller the braided lines the other day, our problem lies with the routing from the caliper to the braided could someone please explain and put up a diagram or picture so we can clearly understand the routing of the pipes.

Many thanks

Rikko,

This is how I did mine. If you don't have the brackets you will need to make up some L shaped brackets to fix the pipe to hose joint. I used a Mikalor ss clamp on the rear upright to secure the bracket. The front one is bolted to the caliper mounting plate via the caliper mounting bolt.

I made my own pipes so they may be a little different to yours.

Cheers

Jon
