Early car brake line route

PostPost by: gjz30075 » Fri Nov 17, 2017 12:43 am

My brake line from the Master to the junction on my S3 is missing so can anyone show me, with some good pics, the route the brake line from the Master takes to get to the junction fitting on the other side of the frame? LHD car.

Hi Greg,

Not sure what differences there may be from S2 to S3, but in case there may be similarities here are some pics I posted for my LHD S2 [now under refreshment]. These pics were taken before disassembly, but after M/C removed. More are here: https://www.flickr.com/gp/[email protected]/eq6spG

Not sure if these are just what you need, but if I can help, let me know.

Very good, Jay, thanks! I see your line from the Master goes straight over the clutch master, whereas some
other pics I've seen show the line taking a 180 down between the masters. Might be an S2 vs S3 thing.
