Brake line parts

Wayne,
If they are the double female reducers that attach to the male on the T, I do have 2 of the reducers. Let me see if I can get them off tommorrow without any problems. I will let you know if they come off ok. PM me your address and I will send them to you.

Talking brake fittings

Hey Mike

Sorry I haven't responded before now. I received the fittings the other day and have since installed them on the trailer. They are just what I needed. It only took about an hour to install and bleed the lines. Guess what? I've got brakes and great brakes I might add. I can stop the whole rig now by operating the electronic sending unit under the dash. Mike you have been such a resource and so has this site!! Please PM me the costs and I will send you some $$$. Its the least I can do. Now that I have brakes I want to take the trailer somewhere but I will probably start to winterize it instead. We could get the big freeze here in Indiana any day. Anyway thanks for everything....I hope I can repay the favor someday. Back to the brakes....
Question....Are there guidelines for using the electronic sending unit instead of the brakes on the tow vehicle? There is an adjustment on it and how do you know where to set it?
Just wondering. I hope all went well at the docs. let me know.

Thanks again
Wayne

Brake fittings

laurandwayne,
I was glad to be able to help out. You dont owe me anything. The parts were not doing me any good so I am glad they were able to fix your problem. Maybe some day I will need something that you have or can find and will return the favor to me or someone else. That is one of the greatest thing about this forum, the people who are willing to help each other deal with our aluminum obsessions.
Now to your Brake controller. I know nothing at all about the disc brake setup. Is the master cylinder vacuum operated or is there a electronic controller which somehow activates the master cylinder? It would probably help if you say what kind or brand of controller you have so someone could give you more info.
Good luck
Mike B

Mechanic,
Those disc brakes are awesome aren't they! I replaced wheel bearings/races not long ago and did a close inspection of my caliphers and rotors. Those rotors are sure heavy.

'77 disc brakes

Davidz71,
Yes,disc brakes are great.I replaced the brake pads,repacked bearings,and replaced all four brake hoses.I also installed a surge brake controller.I think these brakes are superior to drums.
