    Well, my awesome parts locator system has once again failed me . I have lost the "T" fitting that attaches to the rear axle housing for the rear brake lines. anyone have a picture of that "T" so I can see what I'm looking for or even better got one for sale? (I know I should have this in the parts section ) Thanks in advance.

    The flex line hole is a 7/16x20inverted flair and the two lines are 3/8x24 inverted flair.

    Hard to find new.  You might have to make it up with a couple different fittings

    Not totally sure but this might be it pn BF02

    ,,so Dougie,,,,,,what is wrong with yours,,,,,,something that a torch and vice grips cant fix?
    a REAL T has a grove for the horseshoe clip that holds it onto the rear end,,,,,,,I use a braided aircraft hose with the normal AN-4 female ends on it,,,,then they sell a million adapter fittings to connect that hose to anything you want,,,,,,and in my case here,,,,,I got a 3/8 male line going into the hose,,,a 7/16 female in my T,,,,,,,,I would say they make  3/8x7/16x3/8 T's......probably Edeleman fittings,,,,,,a REAL auto parts store should have a cabinet with fittings in it,,,,,,,or get a 7/16 T and 3/8 adapters for the 2 rear lines into it,,,,,,,
