      So the info I found held that part from 7/70 to 7/80, maybe I heard it wrong on the phone. 7/76 to 7/80?? (Just posting what I’ve learned based on your info)

      I believe all later model brakelines are 10x1.0. You can put a wanted ad in the classified section, or find someone parting out a 40. That part started in 76 when 40's got disc brakes in the frt. I believe you'll need the longer hardline fittings.

      It’s been a while (2012) but thanks to the help and guidance of all the members here, I successfully cleaned and repaired an entire cruiser… frame off. And yes, your methodology is what I would definitely use.

      Well, then good luck finding the replacement. If used then at least you know how to make it look better and last longer. :)

      Except the threads on the inbound side of the rear circuit are buggered up… had a few left and now they’re gone. So it would be a really pretty paper weight and the cruiser would only have front brakes - probably not safe. ?? 🤷‍♂️

      I would degrease your part, soak it in Evap-o Rust to remove the rust. Once clean paint it with some Rust Reformer primer and then a semi-gloss engine enamel and put it back.

      Thank You - I think I might have found something, but it will be Monday. With that, can you confirm that 7/70 to 7/80 is a 10mm x 1.0 (Size and THread) or do you know where I can confirm this?

      Yes sir.. I have that, and I do believe your size and pitch is correct. (From My research) I have the part just threads are buggered up bad. SO either need a replacement with good threads or where to by another and build the bracket. I do...

      1978 FJ40 Passenger frame rail two 90* "way" part number 90413-10028. (I think) can anyone confirm (solid) the size & pitch? I think it is 10mm x 1.0. This is the piece I would like to fix/find or replace. or any resources to get the parts...

      Hoping someone has one of these for a 78 FJ40, or knows where I can resource the two 90* connectors? Here is a pic for what I am looking for..

      DO you have the brake line bracket on the passenger frame rail? Female/Female 90 Turn. Welded on a bracket? Parts list says it will match a 78FJ40(??) hoping it is the same Thread Pitch / depth.

      Yes, they are Hard Lines and visible. Its just a short "S" shape and used air to make sure it was clear.

      Thought about this too. To insure the MC was not leaking, I left it on the bench for hours... Fluid did not leak from MC or did air get into the lines to the reservoir. I checked the booster and see no indication there is a leak. The MC sat...

      Always a chance, but when I did the same procedure as a bench bleed in the truck. Looping from MC to reservoir it seems functional in both FR & RR. I did not touch the push rod - so I can look but the pedal and push rod are both functioning and...

      Yes, Oreilly's sells a kit. You use the provided plastic and clear tubing. I used this on the MC and then attached the PV and did it from the outbound port on that. Seems to me to be functioning correct. But still won't bleed or Gravity feed...

      Thank you for all of this. Didn't even know where to begin to find these. No, I am not sure it is the PV but not sure how to "test" it to confirm it either way. Again, thank you

      I would have to build a bypass, which I am willing to do.... Not sure where to get the proper threads for this system. I would need a male to female adaptor. Correct? What sizes would that be? Thread pitch?

      1978 FJ40, Original MC (MasterCylinder) rebuilt in 2013 and again now. Removed and cleaned the PV (ProportioningValve) by removing and inspecting the 21mm nut, spring, rubber washer, and confirmed fluid flow. (Seems good??) Bare with me as I...
