Brake Line Junction Mount

As you can see, I have a few holes to fill. I know Henry's Engineers didn't do things without a reason. On my other Street Rods, I ran my Brake Lines through my Frame with a bulk-head fitting.

Does anyone know why they chose to use this bracket ? Seems redundant. But I'm not gonna remove it if there is a sound reason to keep it.

That's where the front brake lines change to rubber hose. There is a fitting and clip to hold the fitting in place.

Understand that. but was the bracket serving a design purpose or just "there" ?

Thanks

I think it's "just there" It was alot easier for Ford to rivet on a standardized brake line bracket than it was for them to design a bulkhead style through the frame mount.

I say that if you want to take it off and route your through the frame to clean things up then go for it!

Woohooo

Of course it serves a design purpose! With the line mounted in this bracket, the hose will not twist or tangle with anything over the complete range of suspension movement and steering angle. It also allows a different bracket to be used for the larger trucks, or COE's, etc. with different suspensions. If you replace it with something else, be sure your location guarantees the same. If you don't have stock suspension, the stock bracket location may not be correct.

"Of course" is not so damned obvious to me.

Thank you for the information. I've watched you for a while and I've determined you are are rude, self-important know-it-all...

I'm outa-here

Don't bother replying

CIAF is starting off with a positive reputation.
E-Dawgie, I would think that the design was to make it easier for assembly at the factory. Maybe the lines could be started and tightened quicker while the frame was traveling down the rail. Just a guess tho !!! I took mine out and used a different (tab) on my front when I re-plumbed it for disc brakes. They do look a bit strange if left there when you clean up the chassis. I like bulkheads anyway..
