Front center brake hose

Trying to find the center brake hose for a '76 F150 4x4. This is the hose that goes between the proportioning valve and the front differential. I have found Dorman H36809 and a pic on Summit's website showing the exact hose, but everywhere shows it as obsolete. If this is no longer available, what are you guys using in its place? I am sure I can fabricate something, but hoping there is a replacement out there. Thanks in advance!

I checked Jeff's and other sites. No luck. But don't fret, you can buy those T blocks, banjo fittings, and premade hoses at Summit and other supply sources. I made up a couple for a Scout that way. Or maybe Number Dummy knows where a NOS hose is. Either way it won't be a show stopper for you.

Thanks for the replies! That is the same info I had found but thought it a little hard to believe since about everything else for these trucks is available. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something. No big deal, wont be too hard to fabricate one! I will try to update the thread with what I end up doing. Maybe it will help someone else. Thanks again!

Give Inline Tube a look online. I bet you can come up with a solution.

I will have to see where I got mine when I did my brakes. I know I changed it, will look in my folder when I get home.

For Inline Tube, look at the "hot rodder" catalog and see if you can piece something together.

Ford must have changed the plumbing in 78. The front stuff on mine doesn't look the same.

This is what mine took. Sunsong 220395 from RA. Now that I think about it they were one of the few places that had the center hose.

Could you make this work? Might try a parts store that makes hoses.

1972/76 F100 4WD & 1976 F150 4WD is one type. 1977 F150 4WD is 1977 only. 1978/79 F150 4WD & Bronco is different again.

Sorry it's the "Street Rod" catalog.

Is that a "T" on the end with the bracket? How does the other end connect to the prop. valve?

I bet you can get the pieces to make one for less than 40.00 from inline.

I had mine made, the ends can be saved and used again. See if you have a parker dealer near you. https://www.hoseandfittingsetc.com/p...ke-hose-rubber
