im installing a 4way disc conversion kit. i have a new block where the flex line and 2 brake lines go together. my problem is when i called Right Stuff about the bracket that holds this brass block to the differential cover i was told they dont have one. i origianlly ordered this kit from Ground Up. but i dont see a braket that holds this block.

doesn anyone know a place that sells this braket that will mount an after market disc brake conversion kit block? its brass Right Stuff told me i would prob have to braze a braket on there basically make one myself. im sure some one has to make this.

Do you have the actual bracket? Usually you reuse your old one. If not, you can order it from Ground Up. Here is the link

Just a side note, If you are using an aftermarket SS braided hose, the brass block is longer than stock and you will have to bend the two tabs on the bracket to tighten it down.

hey thnx for the reply. no i dont have the orginal. i looked and looked i think i forgot and pitched it with all the old lines. i was under the assumption that i got everything i needed with the conversion kit. which you would think should be right. but in the end it wasnt, it doesnt come in the kit. ( if its a conversion kit it should include everything you need to replace EVERYTHING that was originally stock wouldnt you think? )

this may sound silly, but im looking at the braket, im assuming it bolts to the diff. cover right? well looking at the shape how does it hold the block for the flex line? secondly does that clip bolt to the diff cover as well? does the clip hold the line off to the side? sorry im just not getting this. i wish they woudl show a pic of how it looks mounted it would really help out alot more.

by the way nice 71. that was the year of my first chevelle. it was a malibu as well. i got it with a 307 and eventially went to a 350. i sold it to buy my 66 SS that was 22 years ago !!!! now im living my dream and doing a frame off on the 66. im hoping 2 yrs ill have her on the road. cant believe the money and things you need to do and buy. i herd the horror stories but it trully is alot of money and ALOT of work. esp if your doing it the right way. i hope to have pics up here soon. i posted some earlier in the welcome section. ill try and find the link.

Here's this bracket mounted on the diff. The clip also bolts to the diff also. It's in the third photo far right, you almost can't see it. One thing I have learned is never throw anything away until the project is completed.

where did you get that block from? the one Ground Up sells doesnt have a hole for the bolt its just a brass "T" theres no way to bolt it.

i agree this is my first time doing this. ive learned now but its to damn late. now i either gotta buy a different block or make something. where did you get your from? Ground up gets theres from The Right Stuff. thats the block they use which i described. its only a brass "T" like i said no way to bolt it.

You have the earlier style tee. It is held to a different style (rare) bracket by a clip.

thats the only tee they sell. they list it for 67 and up. so where can i get the other style block?

Also try www.oldmusclecars.com shows the rear flex hose with the block in their catalog as part no. 1231001 for 69 to 71. The one you have shows as being 68 or earlier. They show a rear axle bracket as part no. 3887262 for 10 bolt and 3872942 for a 12 bolt. It is listed for 68. It says to call for the bracket. 1-800-722-4828. Get their catalog. Not sure if it is the same for 66. My catalog is for 68 to 77 chevelle's. The catalog has been alot of help since the pictures are better then the assembly manual most of the time. Good luck.
