I need to replace the intermediate brake line that runs from the proportioning/metering valve back to the rear axle and I’m getting conflicting information off the Internet about which part number fits. My intermediate brake line is a one piece and I see some listings that say they are different part numbers and some listings that say they are the same for fine lines/tubes. They have a part number EIN7003 which claims to be a one piece, intermediate line For a barracuda with this brakes upfront and a list a EIN7007 break line for the challenger. But on eBay and various Amazon sites they are listing the EIN7007 as being for a barracuda as well.

Has anybody bought The intermediate one piece brake line for a 70 Cooter recently and can you recall which part number you purchased?

Anybody know if the intermediate brake line for the Cuda with disc/drums in 1970 is the same for the challenger?

Thanks


It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas.

Challengers are longer.

Same goes for the main front to rear line

Damn I was afraid of that. I’ve just ordered the EIN70079 because the Dam ad said it was for barracuda but now I find out that it’s for a challenger. Does anybody know what part of the line is longer? Is it the part between, the rear spring mount and the front horizontal frame member that the line goes through

If its the part of the line in front of that horizontal frame member I could just cut the line down and re-flare the end to make the challenger line work, but I’m afraid that it’s probably between that frame member and the spring support. Where does the challenger get the extra wheelbase from?

Challenger has a longer wheelbase, so I'd think front-to-back brake and fuel lines would have to be different.

Amazon is not very good at identifying correct part numbers, and I wouldn't use them as a reference.

If you are getting it from Amazon just ask for a refund send it back. They pay shipping and you don't hav eto package it if you drop it off with their shipping Q code at the UPS store.

Where does the challenger get the extra wheelbase from?

There was an interesting episode of Graveyard cars that covered this. It's under the rear seat, It was one thing that Mark didn't know the reason for.

There is a 2" difference in wheelbase. Just add a couple of small bends where convenient and only you will know it's the wrong part. Or send it back.


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
