I have aset of SS brake lines that came with the TR3. They are not correct for the car, and I would like to know if anyone can ID them. The lines on the left are both 14.5" long and shows both ends. Lines on right are both 11" long and shows both ends. I know they are not correct for TR6 also.

2nd picture may show a date code, not sure.

Keith,

Not sure either, but I can tell you that the top pic/bottom line with the large nut looks like the same type of arrangement that is inside the TR3 Master Cylinder reservoir (although it is only a nipple that leads into a line..) Wonder if it is off a car with a similar arrangement....

If those are plastic line (which is what they look like to me), they probably run from res to M/C.

The lines are braided SS with a plastic sleeve on the ends.

What's "wrong" with the lines? Is it the threads? If it makes any difference, threads in brake line fittings for the older Lockheed brake system are not the same as those for the later Girling (w/front disc) system.
