Well i found the only line i have to replace is the one going to the rear and thats all pretty stright the fuel line isnt rusted and so ill see if i can re use that seeing its all ready on the car. Thr front lines are good and are not rusted or leaking. so i think brake line wont be to bad for me to do.

For safety, replace the three rubber flex lines, old ones tend to separate inside and hold pressure against the brakes, so just really good insurance.

The two front ones should be interchangeable, there isn't one from the master cylinder to the distribution block, it should be hard line, but there should also be one from the rear body to the rear end.

That seems extremely odd even for a single master cylinder back in 1956. Granted I haven't seen everything, but that is definitely a first on me.

Front hoses are interchangable unless they were sold as left and right hose.  I've seen that before.

Interesting. I would update to a dual master cylinder and proportioning valve at this time. If you have to replace stuff, do it all at once and be done with it once. Since you have drums all the way around, find something with drums all the way around and the master cylinder and proportioning valve will work just fine. Get rid of the dangerous single master cyinder, and on second thought, is there anyone that knows if spindles can be changed at the same time for front disc brakes?

I'd go to a dual cylinder too, plan to on my '58. A late 60s Dart
master cylinder has been often used for this on ForwardLook cars, you can get
that at any NAPA.  Pretty cheap to do and for sure a good safety
update.  If not make sure the emergency brake is good!



Hey are you gonna check out that '57 DeSoto coupe at Rustic? Think several guys are interested.

I'm curious whether the Poly engines are in any of those
Chryslers.  I'll be up for the weekend, first visit of the
season...and it's gonna be nice weather... WOOT!
