    Brake Line to Front Calipers

    I've got some Girling type 16 PB metric TR6 front brake calipers. They are mounted on my Austin-Healey 100-6, and were supplied with custom flex lines that have a tendency to kink. I want to use the TR6 flex lines, which would have a smoother route.

    There is a short rigid pipe, hose to caliper, metric thread, Moss 588-555. One end of this rigid pipe obviously screws into the caliper. Is this pipe supported anywhere else along its length to keep it from flexing? If so, how?

    Thanks!

    There is a small "L" shaped bracket that attaches at the upper caliper mounting bolt for the solid line from the caliper to the flex line attachment. Note that only the fitting for the caliper is metric, the end that attaches to the flex line is Unified/SAE threads. Moss part number 582-165 or Triumph/Roadster Factory part number 141124 for the bracket.

    Is this the pipe?

    For just a little more, you can do it yourself!
