Seems like your trying to install the hose Without moving your hardlines to the front! Won't work unless that move has been made. If you wish I can send you a copy of everything you need as well as the parts list. Just PM me.

Sleepysal: the brake hoses are the same for the Granada and Tbird, problem is his hardlines have not been moved. This is a safety issue that needs to be address prior to instlling the soft lines I belive.

I have the original style but new ones to go on I think. I got a bunch of parts one day, but honestly I think they are 78 t-bird. I'm going all new anyways so moving stuff isn't a problem.

You will need some of the brackets that hold the steel line and hose from a donor car like the ones on your 64, but I think to use the flat spring clip you need the 70's style. Also many people belive that it is ONLY 77-79 T-Bird spindles that you can use, not true! spindles are the SAME from 74-79 Ford Intermediate cars. Exception is Lincoln Versallis. I have the instruction sheet for this swap if you are interested.

Utilizing the hoses from either the 75-80 Granada's or 74-79 T-birds, Cougars or LTD's (Same Part) will accomplish the proper end result. Install brake rotors and calipers, install hose, install brackets towards front of car, extend hard lines to new location. I have step by step instructions for the proper way to do this swap.

I just did the 79 T-bird swap and used the T-bird hoses without moving the hard line. Am I asking for sure trouble? The hoses are not kinked and seem to be working fine. The new disc are awesome. I did think about putting 90 degree fittings on them .

Bad news when your line breaks. Front are responsible for 75% of your braking. Reconfigure your system or take out a large life insurance policy to take care of your loved ones.
