G'Day all. Does anyone know a reputable braided hose supplier/fitter? I need Aircon, Power Steering and engine bay Brake Lines.

With the Big Block there's stuff all room to run anything so I need the best lengths and heat protection. I figure braided is the safest and custom length may solve routing.....

May even consider routing behind the inner guards to tidy up the engine bay but that could be problematic with enter/exit points.

Pirtek should make any custom hoses you need. Not sure about braided though.

The only place that does braided brake lines around Canberra is Neil Bates Automotive Both Pertek and Enzed are here but are not certified to Aust Standard. Odd really!

As long as they are a one peice braided line (as opposed to having removable fittings), they should be OK.
At least that was the case on my bikes.

Braided are no better in a heat situation. Just get the regular hose & route it properly. We ran hard lines where ever possible on the race cars as the braided stuff will pulse if too long.

Rubber hoses served the car well for at least the first 45 years of life.

If you have heat issues, then you have major issues with the engine/cooling systems. Re-routing hoses is not going to serve much of a purpose & braided will only be more of a headache.

If you still want to go braided for brakes and know the end fittings you need or have a piece to copy call Matt@Race Brakes Sydney or HEL in Brisbane. RBS use premium Goodridge hose and fittings.

Matt is currently doing some for me for another project at ~$50 a hose and supplies ADR compliant hardware.

Rubber hoses are pretty tough and resilient I have seen some very aged high pressure hydraulic hoses in mining which keep doing there thing even if they make you cringe and hide for cover when they are pulsing away.

Cheers,

Sounds like a rerouted rubber will do! Thanks guys. Saved me some money. Needed to know that. Will keep the braid for prettiness rather than resilience and route through the inner guard to avoid the manifolds.

From what I know, and that's very little, length on PS and aircon hoses shouldn't be an issue as long as the bends are smooth. Yes??

For the brakes I've been referred to Ferris at Quattromotive in Brisbane. Anyone use him before or know of him?

Lastly. Anyone heard of return valves being used on brake lines. I have a leaking master cylinder and been told a return valve will stop back pressure blowing fluid up against the lid seal.

Fluid leaking from the lid is an issue with the lid seal, fluid has to return or the brakes stay on. If it has drums on the rear it may need a static line pressure valve, it's not a non return valve really it holds a couple of PSI on the rears that's all.

Yeah, no return valve on brakes may or may not result in death.

Its got RRS Discs on the rear as well. Here's the info I found.

www.jalopyjournal.com/...40678.html

If my leak comes back I think I will try a pair of RPVs...

2lb. Residual Pressure Valve for 1965-1973 Mustangs with Disc Brakes.

These valves are used in a disc brake system. It's purpose is to act as an anti-siphon valve preventing the brake fluid from siphoning back into the master cylinder when the brake pedal is released. Available in a blue anodized or polished finish.

Have them here, they are really for drum brakes & mainly used when the master is below the wheel cylinders (hot rods) & not used on Mustangs.

Brakes are simple things. Do not over complicate them.

Therein is most of your issues ...... Poke

Truth is RRS may have sold them, but they are not the manufacturer. I will bet your issues are a simple fix once you have someone that is very experienced with brakes to have a look at them.

If you were near me I would send you to my brake guy. He would sort it no problem.

BTW, the last thing you want is something holding pressure on the caliper. Will just overheat the disc & wear pads out IMO.

So I've had the master decked and used a new seal and lid and still getting fluid from front right corner.

Proportioning valve is surrounded by spaghetti.

Pics of the master in the album.

Anyone know a good brake guy in Brisbane?
