front t piece brake pipes

Postby xpress » Sat Feb 26, 2011 12:41 pm

Hi. Just wondering I pulled the n/s front brake pipe to the hose, through a small hole in the engine bay when taking off, wouldn't it be better through one of the bigger ring holes? Where do your brake pipes go through on your engine bay and if the bigger holes which one? Regards

The idea being to hold it snuggly so it doesn't vibrate and fatigue fracture.......

Damn lol thank you. It definitely didn't have this grommet. Yes with copper pipes this small hole seemed odd on its own!

What about the o/s drivers side pipe? Is that passing through a rubber grommet or one of the big circles?

Can I fit the grommets on after the pipes if I cut them and a bit of superglue once affixed?

Thanks bmc. Whether about the other side, correct place for the pipe to pass through?

You can often get the right position for various pipes etc from pictures in the workshop manual, that way you get factory 'settings'
