    are the hard lines on a 14blt ff the same??
    how about the fittings that screw in too the splitter,distribution block, or whatever you want to call it and the other fitting on the opposite end that would screw into a rubber line that would be goin to a caliper for disc brakes with a banjo nut for a 7/16ths from a 77d44??
    the truck its on is a 83 k5.

    I have seen my buddies 14bff install , the block on the top of the axle fitted right up to the line on his truck . As for the rubber hose to the disc brakes , I hear of guys using chevette hoses to go to the factory hard line . /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    I used the hard line off my old 10 bolt rear when I swapped in my 14bff. It screwed into everything just fine. Should work.
