    I have a few questions on the 14bff brake lines. The 14bff I have has the steel brake lines on it, but they are in pretty bad shape. I need to know where I can get a new set of rear steel brake lines that with fit a 14bff.(prebent if possilbe.) Or will my steel lines on my 10 bolt work with the 14bolt? I appreciate any help. Thanks

    when i got my 14b the lines were pretty bad so i used the lines from my 12 bolt and it worked fine, so im sure the 10bolt will work just the same

    Ones on my 'donor' axle were junk as well. Used the 'factory' 10 bolt and no problems.

    got to your local parts store and buy new lines....these are brakes we're talking about save up your change for a week go to the parts store and for $7 get new ones....its worth the piece of mind. i tink they were 30" and 40" lines(they usually have only 10" segments). i just did mine.

    Harley,

    Yea, just go to the parts store and get 3/16" brake line...I got the 40" long stuff and cut it down and reflared it to use with my flex lines for my disc brake on the 14bff...I think two 3/16" lines that were 40" long ran like $8.50 and they included the inverted flare fittings...

    Good luck man... /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    If you want pre-bent lines, try out classictube.com or inlinetube.com. They will have the lines already bent to where you just order them and install them. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I just got done bending lines for my 14 bolt that I just swapped in. I'm not a mechanic, but it was one of the easiest things I've done on the truck. 1 30" line and 1 40" line is enough. just trim it a little, flare it, and you're in buisness.
