    Does anyone have or know where to buy the short S shaped brake line that goes from the master cylinder to the division block for a 64-66. I haven't looked under my 69 to see if they are the same. I just bought a 66 chevy van that has sat almost 35 years and has no brakes and went to put the new master cylinder on her and the line at both ends bent and broke even with soaking with wd40 for a few days

    NAPA has a rack of them, I think Oreilly probably does too in the back. When I redid my brakes I took a measurement of the line length, and whatever size fittings needed to be on the ends, and matched them up at the store. Of course you will have to bend it yourself. You probably dont want an old line, brake lines corrode from the inside.

    Thank you Scott I know Napa had parts for my baby (69 gmc handivan) that nobody else carried . I bought my new master cylinder on ebay,my 66 chevy van I just got has sat since 1988 and has no brakes,she is complete but a project. I have to get her inspected at the chp on June 22nd and just in case they demand I drop the van off the trailer which has no winch since the trailer is used for construction usually. And finally went to an orielys a week ago for new trailer lugs and lugnuts, they were the only place that carried several sizes in stock

    FYI - Strait length = 8.5" - should be Ø 3/16" tubing with 3/8-24 fittings.
    There are tubing vendors such as https://classictube.com/brake/ that fabricates lines.

    I have the strait lengths of all the lines if you need more (from parts book).

    Thank you guys, donivan65 it is a 7/16 . I went to Orielys and they looked through everything they had and didn't have anything close. I am going to check and see if it's the same size on my 69 handivan . Nobody (thankfully) is parting a flat window or selling parts on ebay except pop-up windows that I me saw. One junkyard in Missouri or somewhere is parting a 67 g10. I don't frequent junk yards very 9ften but I'd not be happy seeing any 64-70 g10s there or any old vans for that matter be they an a100 or econoline

    That 69 is a dual system, so it may have a standard brake line,,,when we go from single line to dual line master cylinders, we use a universal braided hose that uses adapters to match fittings sizes,,,,,

    Other plans are to  get a 3/8 line and a  7/16 line and switch a fitting with a double flaring tool,,,,or just find a 3/8 female to 7/16 male adapter fitting to convert one end of that 3/8 brake line to fit the junction block...can you get the 2 fittings off your brake line to switch one to a new line?

    It's 7/16 on both ends. I don't see why nobody doesn't reproduce them as soo many of the vans are still on the road and people do still restore them

    Thank you very much donivan65. I think that will work. I contacted a hose place in Apple Valley about having one made, this part will make it easier if they don't already have it in stock I will buy it. I would love to start working on starting the van but don't want to until after I get her brakes working. I'm always worrying about the wrong things first. I want my solid rear doors and ralley rims before she runs,gets inspected or has brakes
