Wonder where folks get their rear brake hose? It is about 14", one end has the Y on a bracket that comes back 2" and then takes a 90 to bolt onto the rear end. Maybe the bracket is separate from the hose, IDK.

Or is it hopefully one of those "does not fail" parts?

When I was trying to get my front drum brakes to work, I found that one of them was completely blocked probably due to swelling of the inside of the hose. Also after nearly 50 years, they will be cracked. Better to buy new ones.

Yep, that's the one. But $40?? Question: Is a new Made in China hose better than a 40 year old Made in USA hose??

Says they make their own hoses, looks like a reputable USA business. says average life 6 yrs though...mines 47, still looks ok, but expect its not... IIRC the front hoses/park brake cables were not cheep either, at least now someone has the hoses available.

I doubt anything made today will be on the road in another 40 yrs though- but face it, sadly odds of these cars being around that long is not great either :(

There was a NOS ford hose on there too, but these are one of those things age alone might take out, even if unused.

In my opinion, a new hose doesn't matter where it's made, is better than a 50 year old hose which could collapse or burst and cause brake failure.

I can't remember where i got mine exactly. Probably carquest because they were closer at the time and had the most car sense. I know it was one of them, AZ or NAPA. But of course mine is '64

I show several manufacturers of the hose without bracket. If you don't need the bracket part, it ranges from $6.44 to $18 at RockAuto.com, or lists for $13.98 at my local auto parts store for store brand.

the one on ebay is for 65-66, I think the only difference is the hose length. Here is the parts book listing for the hose.

Looks like the bracket screws on, can't tell for sure.

For my 67 Galaxie, I had a SS Braided one made. I think I sent them my old hose and they reused the bracket (or made a new custom braket to match). But I'll have to check when I get home to confirm and then I can tell you who made it for me too. I went with SS braided because I'm hoping to never have to change that hose again. I want to do the same for the front hoses but I had blown one and needed replacements fast so I just got some rubber ones locally. When I did the rear one, it was during the off season so I didn't mind waiting for the SS braided one to be custom made to the correct length.

$34 plus shipping and you don't get a bracket, not too much to pay attention to there :)

:frown:

Let me see if I have this right.

You want a new bracket on a quality hose assembly for less than ten bucks and expect them to deliver it free?

Maybe they should install and bleed also?

Finally, someone here with basic common sense...
